The Use of Data to Improve Reminders, Order Checks, and Alerts in Reproductive-Aged Women

February 19, 2017 — 08:00AM EST - 04:30PM EST
Hyatt Regency Orlando
Session ID: 


Reproductive health reminders, order checks, and alerts rarely use data beyond age and gender, resulting in clinically irrelevant interruptions to a clinician’s workflow. To reduce these, this project incorporates additional data: relevant codes, pregnancy/lactation status, contraception use, and a patient’s indication of her ability to conceive with their partner.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Understand the current use of data in electronic health records (EHRs) in supporting clinicians in making risk/benefit decisions around medications with reproductive health implications
  • Review sources of data in EHRs related to reproductive health and how that data can be used to support clinicians at the point of care when counseling women about these medications
  • Learn of one organization’s efforts to use data more robustly in order to reduce the amount of clinically irrelevant reminders, orders checks, and alerts around female reproductive health
