WEBINAR | Clinician Satisfaction with CDS: A Realizable Goal?
March 10, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
Donald Levick, MD, MBA, CPE, FHIMSS, Pediatrician & former CMIO, Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN). Helping clinicians make safe and effective medication choices for their patients is the primary purpose of medication decision support systems. Unfortunately, “alert fatigue” – an all-too-common experience today – diminishes the effectiveness of such systems and can be fueled by over-alerting, under-alerting, insufficient information, and warnings presented at the wrong time. Dr. Levick shares his experience as a CMIO, focused not only on patient safety and quality improvement, but also clinician satisfaction with the EHR. His ongoing interest in effective CDS drove the implementation of targeted medication warning CDS, including pharmacogenomics, and increased medication-related alert acceptance to greater than 60%.
