This research develops a standardized framework to integrate artifact detection (AD) in computerized Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS). Review of the state of the art has revealed a number of limitations currently preventing the widespread implementation of AD algorithms within CDSS. To address those limitations, this paper develops a novel component-based AD framework for integration in CDSS. The novelty of this research is the development of a Common Reference Model (CRM) with standard definitions for component interfaces. These definitions include common physiologic data attributes of: (1) type; (2) frequency; (3) length; and (4) Signal Quality Indicator.
