The HIT system studied is in bold; followed by the systems that it was integrated with. The outcome column indicates whether at least 50% of the relevant outcomes abstracted were positively impacted by the MMIT (+) or not (−).


indicates outcomes noted as being the primary outcome by the paper’s authors

Abbreviations: ADE = Adverse Drug Event; CCDS = Computerized Clinical Decision Support; CDS = Clinical/Computerized Decision Support; CDSS = Clinical Decision Support System; CPOE = Computerized Provider Order Entry; HIT = Health Information Technology; N = Sample Size; POE = Provider Order Entry; RCT = Randomized Controlled Trial
