We have extended the CARE language to facilitate interaction with providers using the Medical Gopher order entry system during patient care to create G-CARE. We have used G-CARE in several randomized controlled trials and for routine clinical applications. The language has evolved and is now able to support nearly all of the decision support. Its flexibility allows G-CARE results to be used at many points throughout the patient care process. Based on actual use of G-CARE, we have found performance issues and lack of dynamically grouped order sets are limitations which need to be addressed.
