On May 18th, 1996 I gave a presentation on Diagnostic Decision
Support Systems. This is the bibliography for the presentation.
These articles provide a good introduction to the field.

systems in primary care. Primary Care 1995

systems--past, present, and future: a threaded
bibliography and brief commentary [published erratum

Slack WV. Computer-based support for clinical decision
making. MD Comput 1990 Sep-Oct;7(5):319-22.

These articles were selected, somewhat idiosyncratically,
because I felt they made some important and interesting
observations and scholarly additions.
