Take a look at https://www.open-emr.org/wiki/index.php/Clinical_Decision_Rules . If you have more specific questions, feel free to ask those as well.

Thank you, Ralf.

And can I use the CDDS directly, or have to install first manually?

You can use it directly “out of the box” without any additional setup … it is set up to check for things like immunizations, smoking status, breast cancer screening, and colon cancer screening. Then you can gradually start modifying it to suit your needs.
