Development of a methadone order form for inpatients

    Wesley D. McMillian and Sheila C. Gencarelli 
    Am J Health Syst Pharm 2009 66: 2076-2083.
     [Full Text] [PDF]  

    Informatic thought:  People still use forms?  Just kidding, of course they do, including where I practice.   Good example of some concepts to put in your CPOE orders for methadone.

Alert fatigue

    Jared J. Cash 
    Am J Health Syst Pharm 2009 66: 2098-2101.

    Fantastic!  Recommendations should be tablets from the mount!

Clinical and economic value of screening for Kras mutations as predictors of response to epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitors

    Erin E. Mancl, Jill M. Kolesar, and Lee C. Vermeulen 
    Am J Health Syst Pharm 2009 66: 2105-2112.
     [Abstract] [Full Text] [PDF]  

    Informatic thought: Does this rise to the level of a decision support rule, to recommend screening prior to ordering?  Has anyone implemented this?

    Esther J. Last and Amy Heck Sheehan 
    Am J Health Syst Pharm 2009 66: 2117-2122.
     [Abstract] [Full Text] [PDF] 

    Informatic thought:  Same as above.  Probably does not rise to the level of a CDS alert.

    Laura V. Moretti and Rolf O. Montalvo 
    Am J Health Syst Pharm 2009 66: 2123-2125.
     [Abstract] [Full Text] [PDF]  

    Informatic thought: Same as above.  This might be considered for a monitoring rule.  On the other hand, when would you use a case study to implement a CDS rule?

    Eileen M. Murphy, Carolyn J. Oxencis, James A. Klauck, Douglas A. Meyer, and Jill M. Zimmerman
