Alerting strategies in computerized physician order entry: a novel use of a dashboard-style analytics tool in a children's hospital.

Author information

Children's Hospital, Omaha, NE, USA.


Utilizing a commercially available business analytics tool offering dashboard-style graphical indicators and a data warehouse strategy, we have developed an interactive, web-based platform that allows near-real-time analysis of CPOE adoption by hospital area and practitioner specialty. Clinical Decision Support (CDS) metrics include the percentage of alerts that result in a change in clinician decision-making. This tool facilitates adjustments in alert limits in order to reduce alert fatigue.
