Our Epic institution utilizes an active interval setting of ZERO hours when it runs interactions for currently placed orders. Therefore, it does NOT capture completed ONE TIME orders for duplicate therapies, which may pose a safety concern given particular medications. Can anyone speak to their Epic configuration of this setting? I am wondering if this setting should be adjusted to capture doses within the past 24 (or less) hours to prompt a closer review, or if this would result in nuisance alerts.
Your insight is much appreciated,
