Abstract

The effectiveness of the clinical decision support systems (CDSSs) is hampered by frequent workflow interruptions and alert fatigue because of alerts with little or no clinical relevance. In this paper, we reported a methodology through which we applied knowledge from the clinical context and the international recommendations to develop a potential drug-drug interaction (pDDI) CDSS in the field of kidney transplantation.
