Alerts Optimization Team- structure and


Our system Alerts Optimization Team is lead by Medication Safety in partnership with Clinical Informatics/ Willow (Epic). We are re-evaluating our committee structure and scope, and plan to develop a charter. If you have a charter in place for your alerts/Clinical Decision Support team, would you mind sharing your charter with me at Please provide brief responses to the questions below:

1. Does your Alerts Team scope include:
a. Optimization of drug interaction/duplication system settings?
b. Review of erroneous alerts submitted by front line team members?
b. Custom Best Practice Advisory (BPA) build requests?
c. Pyxis Alert Review?

2. Please list other activities or types of system alerts included in your team scope:

Thank you!
