Safe Practices to Reduce Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE) Alert Fatigue through Monitoring, Analysis, and Optimization
Having a robust alert and CDS governance plan is just one step in reducing alert fatigue. The Partnership for Health IT Patient Safety workgroup on Safe Practices to Reduce CPOE Alert Fatigue through Monitoring, Analysis, and Optimization investigated the safe practice recommendations focused on governance, monitoring, analysis, and optimization. The whitepaper with the findings is included below with other related resources.
The workgroup was co-chaired by John D. McGreevey III, MD (University of Pennsylvania), Adam Wright, PhD (Vanderbilt), Christina Michalek, BSc Pharm, RPh (ISMP), and Robert Giannini (ECRI).
Review the whitepaper to learn more about the recent findings, focused on:
- Monitoring and governance
- Evaluation and analysis
- Strategies to optimize alerts to convey reliable and effective information
