Decision Support


Contact person

Pernille Just Vinholt, Associate Professor, Consultant, MD, PhD


Research aim

To explore and support clinical decisions. In this regard we disclose relevant aspects regarding clinical decisions. We develop and investigate algorithms and tools, which can help with complex decisions made in screening, diagnosis and monitoring of patients.

Improved decision support can benefit diagnostics and monitoring, leading to increased patient safety and better care, e.g. by suggesting an intervention. Further, decision support may lead to cost reduction, e.g. physician time for reviewing medical records is saved - time that can be used with the patient. Moreover, the systems can provide health statistics and optimize planning and resource consumption in the health care system.


Project examples

 “The Intelligent Patient Medical Record” is a portfolio of projects. Based on natural language processing, we develop algorithms that finds critical information in the medical record and presents it to the physician and/or patient for decision support.

Porphyria diagnostic. The development and evaluation of a digital decision-support tool for porphyria diagnostics based on clinical-biochemistry results.
