We have designed and developed an ICU clinical decision support system (CDSS) to improve outcomes in critically ill patients by providing real-time decision support, decreasing medical errors, and minimizing life-threatening events caused by delayed or uninformed medical decisions. CDSSs are computer-aided ``active knowledge systems which use two or more items of patient data to generate case-specific advice'' and it can improve a physician's decision making performance for providing an evidence strongly . For optimal medical decision making, the CDSS needs to be data-driven, rapid, and
