Reducing Burden by Improving EHR Alerts

August 7, 2020

This is a special episode produced in conjunction with our colleagues in ECRI's Partnership for Health IT Patient Safety.

​The Partnership is convening a workgroup to derive safe practices to reduce CPOE alert fatigue through monitoring, analysis, and optimization. John McGreevy, MD, University of Pennsylvania, and Adam Wright, PhD, Vanderbilt, are the collaborators co-chairing the workgroup.

In this episode, we’re talking to the workgroup’s co-chairs about the burden providers face from alerts, the impact on patient safety, and how the workgroup will identify potential solutions that can be implemented in large and small organization alike.
