Here is a list of your antibiotics, with their covered pathogen sets (each of which is a subset of PATHOGENS): 2 Mathematical Foundations of Decision Support Systems A − Cillin = {A, C} B − Cillin = {A, B, E} C − Cillin = {C, D, E} D − Cillin = {F} E − Cillin = {B, D, F} F − Cillin = {E} 23 What you seek is a set cover of the set PATHOGENS; in other words, you want to pick a set of antibiotics which contains at least one antibiotic that is effective for each pathogen. It’s clear that all six antibiotics taken together make a set cover, but your job is to find the minimum number of antibiotics that will get the job done.

4 Model for Evaluating the Appropriateness of CDSS In a technology environment dominated by electronic health record (EHR) systems [48–51] most of the decision support that clinicians today face comes in the form of alerts presented during the normal use of the EHR [52]. ” Studies of this kind of decision support suggest that clinicians ignore such alerts at high rates [53, 54]. The usual explanation is “alert fatigue” [55] but more complex sociotechnical factors affect the impact alerts have on quality of care [56, 57].
