Clinical Decision SupportĀ for Exact Medication Duplicate Orders

ICIS will generate alerts when you order a medication that is already in the patient's profile. These alerts will fire only when you enter a medication order containing a drug that matches a previously submitted active medication order.

Please note that there are exceptions to this rule. The Medication Safety Committee approved to exclude from duplicate checking the following drugs:

Insulin
Heparin
Mylanta
Furosemide
Morphine
Potassium Chloride
Metoprolol
Acetaminophen
Percocet (acetaminophen/oxycodone)

 

This list is subject to change based upon further analysis of alert statistics and user feedback.

Refer to the Alerts section of this site for an up-to-date listing of drugs excluded from duplicate checking.
