How Algorithms Could Improve Primary Care

Automated clinical algorithms promise to transform primary care. Clinical algorithms specify the steps of a clinical process, leading from inputs such as a patient’s diagnosis to outputs such as recommendations for medication, further diagnostic testing, imaging, or even specialty referrals.

Automated clinical algorithms can be as simple as age-based rules that trigger a scheduling call for a preventive vaccination or as complex as an automated clinical pathway specifying a series of tests and treatments for chronic conditions such as high blood pressure.
