Clinical decision support systems (CDSS) improve healthcare delivery by providing data-driven opinions to care providers throughout the entire care process. The Information Systems (IS) community has produced many works on the subject in the last decade, and it is necessary to comprehensively examine the current state of research to determine the most promising themes to explore in future research. In this short paper, we conducted a literature review of the past five years to synthesise research efforts. By reviewing a preliminary sample of papers, we found that three major areas may be of interest to the IS Community: 'Positive' and 'negative' CDSS discontinuance, patient-centric value creation of CDSSs and the role of policy-makers in mitigating harmful social effects of CDSS policies. This research-in-progress will hopefully lead to the creation of a research agenda for CDSSs.
