FAQ

Can the drug-drug and drug-allergy interaction alerts of my electronic health record (EHR) also be used to meet the meaningful use objective for implementing one clinical decision support rule for the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs?

No. The drug-drug and drug-allergy checks and the implementation of clinical decision support interventions are separate measures. EPs and eligible hospitals must implement five clinical decision support interventions in addition to CDS drug-drug and drug-allergy interaction.
