Getting Started

All electronic algorithms that could affect patient care at Duke Health fall within the scope of the ABCDS Oversight Committee and must be registered.

Algorithms that support evidence-based standards of care (e.g., TIMI score for the treatment of Acute Coronary Syndrome) may be exempt from checkpoint reviews. A determination will be made after the algorithm is registered.

As a first step, please register your ABCDS model or tool by e-mailing abcds@duke.edu and requesting a registration form.

This document provides an overview of the ABCDS Oversight process, the material requested at each checkpoint review, and the principles and criteria for approval.
