There is a growing demand for tools to support clinicians utilize genomic results generated by molecular diagnostic and cytogenetic methods in support of their decision-making. This chapter reviews existing experience and methods for the design, implementation and evaluation of clinical bioinformatics electronic decision support systems (EDSS). It provides a roadmap for identifying decision tasks for automation and selecting optimal tools for building task-specific systems. Key success factors for EDSS implementation and evaluation are also outlined.
