6 Abstract (max.300 words ) The aim of healthcare sector is to provide safe, efficient, and high- quality patient care. Hence automated systems are highly used for clinical as well as administrative purposes. Clinical decision support system (CDSS) is
such an application that analyses data, to help clinicians
in making decisions and improving patient care. In a clinical department, nurses are the assisted service providers to in-patients and emergency care units.
In spite of a pretty big work and working hours, nurses have to take decisions during doctor’s absence.
Hence an awareness about the need of an efficient
decision support system for nurses, is the motivation of this project. This research mainly focuses on the barriers
in a nurse’s decision support system. The objective is to eliminate these barriers by investigating advanced
machine learning approaches.
