Text Description is below the image.
  • CDS intervention appears to be associated with:
    • Significant although small increases:
      • ED visits for hypoglycemia - unintended but not unexpected.
      • ED visits for CHF - ? related to use of TZDs
    • No significant differences:
      • Preventive services (mammograms, pap smears)
      • Appropriate testing among patients with CHF
      • ED visits for unrelated condition (asthma)
  • CDS-related alert fatigue did not occur, at least as measured by PCPs' desires to retain the Alerts as the trial period ends.
