Abstract

Commercial rule bases can be implemented to identify medication orders that fall outside recommended dosage ranges, but they are likely to produce an excessive number of nuisance and clinically insignificant alerts. Strategies for customizing commercial dosing rules can be implemented to minimize this problem. This paper describes specific strategies implemented in a dose checking application necessary for achieving a clinically acceptable alert rate.
