Decision support system developers and users agree on the need for rigorous evaluations of performance and impact. Evaluating simple reminder systems is relatively easy because there is usually a gold standard of decision quality. However, when a system generates complex output (such as a critique or graphical report), it is much less obvious how to evaluate it. We discuss some generic problems and how one might resolve them, using as a case study Design-a-Trial, a DSS to help clinicians write a lengthy trial protocol.
