Medication safety alert fatigue may be reduced via interaction design and clinical role tailoring: a systematic review.

Hussain MI, Reynolds TL, Zheng K. Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association : JAMIA. 2019;26:1141-1149.

This systematic review examined the override rates of several different clinical decision support approaches. Researchers conclude that role tailoring—the provision of different alerts to prescribers versus pharmacists—was the most successful method to reduce alert fatigue. They recommend redesigning decision support to reduce alert fatigue.
