Advisories are one of the most powerful features of Brillians. Advisories improve patient safety and quality of care while reducing clinician’s work.

Advisories identify the clinical abnormalities and high-risk issues by automatically analyzing clinical data when you load a patient in Brillians. Typically, Brillians auto-synchronizes patient with CPRS when user changes patient in CPRS.

The advisories are designed to “point the user in the right direction” by highlighting important issues. They do not identify every possible abnormality in the patient medical record. You can review the nature and the scope of Advisories on this page: Advisories: Logic and Scope | Brillians

The Advisories may not always mirror the USPSTF and various specialty board guidelines which may significantly differ from each other. Further, the data analysis is limited by the lack of computable data in VistA. Therefore, though advisories provide great help, it is important to understand what they are and are not.

Finally, Advisories do not substitute for good history-taking and clinical judgment on part of the clinician. Like many other tools in the clinician’s toolbox, they are just one tool to help improve patient safety and quality of care.
