Mayo Clinic Health Connection: Patient Decision Support Tool

Technology #2013-225

MC Health Connection Patient Decision Support Tool is a software program which can aid patients in important medical decision making. The tool works by organizing medical decision making into decision trees. For each potential limb of decision, the program provides education, risks and benefits and the predicted course of care for each choice. It also delivers, for each choice, an assessment of patient preferences/priorities and an assessment of patient readiness to make that decision.
