Brigette: I know that several orgs have tried at least eliminating some docs from some alerts. like the anesthesiologists you mention. Often, the doses that an anesthesiologist gives during surgery are huge overdoses for an outpatient clinic, so they often stop these alerts to anesthesiology in surgery. similar for oncology. I’m not so sure about the “level of experience” idea, although I do think all junior members of the team should get the alerts. in general, the theory at least is that the alerts are for cases in which the clinician “forgot” not that they didn’t know about the issue so not sure whether you should turn off for the more experienced folks. I do think we should improve the specificity of the alerts, though. that would help everyone.
