This paper describes two different paradigms used by the PRODIGY project to develop clinical prescribing decision support systems. The first system has been specified by the Sowerby Unit, instantiated by the 5 largest UK GP system suppliers and evaluated by 150 general practices. The second system has been specified to incorporate lessons learned from the first set of field trials, and will be ready for trials in the second quarter of 1997. the paper describes the two different paradigms used for decision support and the process of evaluating the systems via user trials.
