The purpose of this study was to determine baseline user satisfaction for 2 computer decision support systems DSSs with demonstrated improvement in patient outcome used in a burn intensive care unit. We conducted a survey of staff members of a 16 bed burn intensive care unit n 82 using a written, anonymous questionnaire to determine satisfaction for 2 DSSs a commercial glycemic management system and software program to guide initial burn fluid resuscitation. Staff members are no yet convinced of a positive correlation between DSS technology and patient outcomes. We suggest user satisfaction may be generally improved for DSS with concentration in the areas of interface, information, and communication.
