One-on-One with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Researcher Thomas Isaac, M.D.

Thomas Isaac, M.D., instructor of medicine in the Division of General Medicine and Primary Care at BIDMC and a project manager at the Center for Health Care Quality Improvement and Safety at Dana-Farber, recently coauthored a study confirming that physicians are overriding the vast majority of drug alerts within clinical decision support systems. What does this mean in terms of the value of having such alerting programs built into e-prescribing and EMR systems to begin with? Healthcare Informatics Contributing Editor Mark Hagland interviewed Thomas Isaac recently regarding his and Weingart's findings from that study.
