  • Structured override reasons for drug-drug interaction alerts in electronic health records. [Journal Article]
  • JAMIAJ Am Med Inform Assoc 2019 Apr 26
  • Wright A, McEvoy DS, … Sittig DF
  • CONCLUSIONS: We found wide variability in override reasons between sites and many opportunities to improve alerts. Some override reasons were irrelevant to DDIs. Many override reasons attested to a future action (eg, decreasing a dose or ordering monitoring tests), which requires an additional step after the alert is overridden, unless the alert is made actionable. Some override reasons deferred to another party, although override reasons often are not visible to other users. Many override reasons stated that the alert was inaccurate, suggesting that specificity of alerts could be improved.Organizations should improve the options available to providers who choose to override DDI alerts. DDI alerting systems should be actionable and alerts should be tailored to the patient and drug pairs.
