This paper identifies three requirements for a successful commercialization of a medical decision support system. The system should be convenient, i.e. time-saving and integrated into existing procedures of data acquisition. It should be safe to use for the medical staff, i.e. the advice provided by the system should be within the range allowed by “medical judgement”. Finally, clinical testing of the system should document that usage of the system improves patient outcomes.
