Impact of Non-Interruptive Alerts

Text Description is below the image.
  • Drilled down into the drug-lab alerts
  • No difference in lab ordering between control and intervention groups
  • Is it a user interface issue or are non-interruptive alerts just not effective?
  • Cost- benefit issue
    • Minimize interruptions so higher risk alerts are accepted more often... yet little benefit seen with non-interruptive alerts
