EHRs produce too many false positives in medication adherence program

“Even in an integrated system, EHRs are not able to efficiently screen patients who may be candidates for medication adherence outreach. Researchers affiliated with the University of Minnesota School of Medicine in Minneapolis and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) used EHRs to identify patients due for statin resupplies, but only one-fifth of the patients identified were appropriate for efforts to reinstate long-term statin use, according to a study published in the July issue of the American Journal of Managed Care.”
