PQA Collaboration to Improve Drug-Drug Interaction Clinical Decision Support
PQA is collaborating with researchers at the University of Arizona to obtain comments and feedback on a series of white papers to improve drug-drug interaction clinical decision support.
A conference series sponsored by a grant for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) was conducted to develop a structured process to improve the quality of DDI alerting systems used by health care providers, and thereby, improve patient safety. Three draft white papers were developed, examining various aspects of drug interaction clinical decision support, with an emphasis on alert fatigue.
As a partner in this project, PQA is assisting the University of Arizona to obtain widespread distribution of the draft white papers to ensure that interested parties have the opportunity to comment on the recommendations to improve drug interaction clinical decision support. Comments are requested by May 31, 2014.
