Box 2 What relevant inputs that could be used to refine AKI automated detection tools?

From: Applications for detection of acute kidney injury using electronic medical records and clinical information systems: workgroup statements from the 15th ADQI Consensus Conference

Consensus Statements:
 Contextual information could be used to identify patients where AKI alerts are generated in order to increase their specificity or could be incorporated within alerts themselves to inform further diagnostic or treatment approaches.
We suggest refining AKI alerts using readily accessible clinical, laboratory, and medication information for patients in whom AKI is detected to increase the appropriateness of AKI alerts and to link these alerts to actionable recommendations.
