Evaluating term coverage of herbal and dietary supplements in electronic health records.
Some supplements can interact with prescription medications, potentially leading to clinically important and potentially preventable adverse reactions. Clinical notes and corresponding medication lists from an integrated healthcare system were extracted and compared with online databases. The authors found that, overall, about 40% of listed medications are supplements, most of which are included in medication lists as nutritional or miscellaneous products. They found gaps between supplement and standard medication terminologies and identified supplements which were not mentioned in the medication lists.
