  • Core drug-drug interaction alerts for inclusion in pediatric electronic health records with computerized prescriber order entry. Journal of patient safety Harper, M. B., Longhurst, C. A., McGuire, T. L., Tarrago, R., Desai, B. R., Patterson, A. 2014; 10 (1): 59-63


    The study aims to develop a core set of pediatric drug-drug interaction (DDI) pairs for which electronic alerts should be presented to prescribers during the ordering process.A clinical decision support working group composed of Children's Hospital Association (CHA) members was developed. CHA Pharmacists and Chief Medical Information Officers participated.Consensus was reached on a core set of 19 DDI pairs that should be presented to pediatric prescribers during the order process.We have provided a core list of 19 high value drug pairs for electronic drug-drug interaction alerts to be recommended for inclusion as high value alerts in prescriber order entry software used with a pediatric patient population. We believe this list represents the most important pediatric drug interactions for practical implementation within computerized prescriber order entry systems.
