Survey clinical decision support system (CDSS) for medical imaging and radiology in Belgium

Dear respondent,
As master students Applied Business Economics (major in finance) at the K.U. Leuven, Belgium, we investigate the clinical decision support system (CDSS) in healthcare and more specific for medical imaging and radiology in Belgium.  

This survey is part of our masters thesis under the supervision of Professor A.Van den Abbeele (Business Economics, K.U. Leuven).

With this survey we investigate which factors ( performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence and facilitating conditions) influence the intention to use and expected usage of a clinical decision support systems (CDSS) in healthcare and more specific in medical imaging and radiology in Belgium.  

Clinical decision support systems (CDSS) are used to augment clinicians in their complex decision-making processes and aim to support a physician in the further referral of a patient with a certain condition. A CDSS can be presented as a decision tree that consults the expertise of specialists and goes through previous similar cases and research literature, suggesting the best (most efficient and effective) way to make a diagnosis and/or treatment. This system can thus circumvent the costs of useless or unclear examinations and propose an appropriate and responsible (both ethical and financial) test.

This survey is intended to capture the viewpoint of the Belgian healthcare providers with regards to clinical decision support systems (CDSS) in medical imaging and radiology.

This survey should only take max. 10 minutes of your time. We very much appreciate your time and effort to complete this survey.

All responses will remain confidential and secure and they will not be shared with third parties.
