Clozapine alert

Do you have any alerts in your EMR (for the provider or the pharmacist) to prompt evaluation of compliance for patients admitted on clozapine from home? After polling the pharmacists at our hospital, most have on their radar to evaluate for issues of neutropenia, but most were not aware of the serious risks of restarting therapy in patients that have had interruptions in dosing of > 2 days.
