Context-sensitive decision support (infobuttons) in electronic health records: a systematic review.

Cook DA, Teixeira MT, Heale BS, et al. Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association : JAMIA. 2017;24:460-468.

Infobuttons, a form of clinical decision support, are small icons in the electronic health record that allow users to access online knowledge resources. This systematic review found some evidence that infobuttons may be helpful despite infrequent use. The authors advocate for further research to determine optimal design and implementation of infobuttons in electronic health records.
