Healthcare professionals are required to make daily decisions about patient care. Moreover, determinations about a specific clinical pathway can have profound impacts on patients’ quality of life and long-term outcomes. The decisions made on behalf of a patient often involve practices for which consensus among practitioners is lacking. The divide between clinical science and practice can be bridged by integrating a Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS) into patient care. A CDSS keeps professionals updated with current knowledge and standards of practice in their respective disciplines. This mini review addresses the gap between knowledge and best practice and offers recommendations to bridge the divide accordingly.
