Press release from: Pharmacy OneSource

Bellevue, Wash. – Wolters Kluwer Health announced today that Pharmacy OneSource, software-as-a-service provider of Sentri7, a clinical surveillance, documentation and reporting application, is hosting a complimentary webinar with Andrew Segar, PharmD, and John Horn, PharmD, in "Alert Fatigue with Drug-Drug Interaction Software: The Way Forward."

Seger and Horn will discuss drug-drug interaction (DDI) alerting limitations and how it fails both patients and practitioners. They will review the results of studies evaluating DDI alerts and how they are received by practitioners. In addition, they will present information that will describe potential solutions to potentially improve the quality of DDI alerting. Common approaches to the problem of alert fatigue, including limiting the categories of alerts that trigger and database customization, will be reviewed with emphasis on the advantages and limitations of each approach.

From this presentation, attendees should be able to describe how DDI alerting works from an informatics perspective and develop strategies to enhance the quality of DDI alerting locally.
