MSOS members are invited to attend the following ECRI Institute webinar

Health IT Safe Practices for Drug Allergies: Using Clinical Decision Support and Health IT

Tuesday, September 24, 2019
12:30 pm -1:30 pm (Eastern Time)


We invite you to learn about the newly released safe practice recommendations for drug allergies using clinical decision support (CDS) and health IT. The safe practices, developed by the Partnership for Health IT Patient Safety, will assist all stakeholders in optimizing the benefits of documentation and CDS for drug allergy interactions.

Access to accurate and up-to-date drug allergy information is a vital component to effective, safe, and timely patient care. This information comes from patients directly and from information captured in the electronic health record (EHR).

The safe practice recommendations, accompanying toolkit with implementation strategies and techniques, will be shared. Participants are encouraged to use and disseminate these materials.

We look forward to your participation on September 24th.
