PURPOSE: Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) rate is a patient sensitive indicator (PSI-12) for hospital quality with poor performance leading to financial penalties by CMS. Computerized clinical decision support tools (CDS) have been shown to reduce VTE rates. Hindering success is alarm fatigue which has been widely reported. We prospectively collected data in order to identify prevalence of alarm fatigue and to quantify clinician behavior during interactions with CDS.
