Nobody wants a patient to die or experience harm from a medication problem. That’s why hospitals need to warn clinicians of potentially dangerous situations via alerting functions deployed within the EMR. The problem is that these warnings are triggered too often, and at the wrong time in the workflow, so clinicians ignore them and organizations discard them. However, when alerting systems can leverage additional patient inputs through measures such as lab values or scoring results, it’s possible to bring more meaningful alerts to the table at the most effective point in the workflow. In this session, you will learn how to integrate information from your EMR with information from a drug knowledge database to reduce the number of nuisance alerts and deliver more meaningful warnings along comprehensive care guidance that can help to improve the overall clinical care process.
