Purpose Acute sinusitis has viral etiology in more than 90% of cases, but antibiotics are prescribed for more than 80% of adults in the United States. While applications of computer-assisted guidelines have been found effective in reducing inaccurate prescribing for acute respiratory infections, there is a paucity of research focused specifically on the utilization of electronic best practice alerts (BPA) in improving treatment for acute sinusitis. Methods This observational cohort study…

Management of Acute Sinusitis via e-Visit.
Background: Acute sinusitis is the most common diagnosis in online health care delivery and is the diagnosis most associated with antibiotic prescriptions in the outpatient setting. Few studies have
Appropriateness of antibiotic selection for pneumonia in the emergency department: pre- and post-order set changes.
TLDR
The implementation of a CDS tool for empiric management of pneumonia in the ED significantly improved the selection of appropriate antibiotics.
Interventions to Influence the Use of Antibiotics for Acute Upper Respiratory Tract Infections
TLDR
It was concluded that there was no difference between delayed and immediate antibiotics for many clinical outcomes, but that immediate antibiotics may modestly improve symptoms for acute otitis media and sore throat compared with delayed antibiotics.
E-Health Tools to Improve Antibiotic Use and Resistances: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Overall, the results show a positive impact on the prescription and conscientious use of antibiotics for respiratory tract infections, both with respect to patients and prescribing healthcare professionals.
Clinical Decision Support Systems in Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery: A State of the Art Review
TLDR
This primer on CDSSs introduces clinicians to both the capabilities and the limitations of this technology, reviews the literature on current state, and seeks to spur further progress in this area.
Effects of health education nursing on patients with acute suppurative sinusitis
TLDR
Patients with acute suppurative sinusitis receiving health education nursing intervention showed obvious signs of emotional relief, including reduced anxiety and depression and increased quality of life.
Clarithromycin versus Amoxicillin alone or with Clavulanate in Acute Maxillary Sinusitis: A Meta-analysis of Clinical Trials
TLDR
Overall bacterial eradication rates were comparable between the two treatments and the combined rate difference in clinical success rates between clarithromycin and amoxicillin was +1.9%.

Impact of a clinical decision support system on antibiotic prescribing for acute respiratory infections in primary care: quasi-experimental trial
TLDR
A CDSS embedded in an EHR had a modest effect in changing prescribing for adults where antibiotics were inappropriate but had a substantial impact on changing the overall prescribing of broad-spectrum antibiotics among pediatric and adult patients.
Use of an Electronic Health Record Clinical Decision Support Tool to Improve Antibiotic Prescribing for Acute Respiratory Infections: The ABX-TRIP Study
TLDR
This multi-method intervention appears to have had a sustained impact on reducing the use of broad spectrum antibiotics for ARIs and shows promise for promoting judicious antibiotic use in primary care.
Use of antibiotics for adult upper respiratory infections in outpatient settings: a national ambulatory network study.
TLDR
Overuse of antibiotics for adult URIs in a large national ambulatory care network, with particular overuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics is demonstrated, demonstrating the enormous potential of EHR data for conducting practice-based research across large national office networks.
Principles of Appropriate Antibiotic Use for Acute Sinusitis in Adults
In this guideline, we will present the supporting evidence for and make specific recommendations on how clinicians evaluating acute sinusitis can differentiate bacterial causes from viral causes and
A Cluster Randomized Clinical Trial to Improve Prescribing Patterns in Ambulatory Pediatrics
TLDR
For common pediatric outpatient conditions, a point-of-care evidence-based prescription writer and decision support system was associated with significant improvements in prescribing practices.
Electronic health record feedback to improve antibiotic prescribing for acute respiratory infections.
TLDR
The ARI Quality Dashboard was not associated with an overall change in antibiotic prescribing for ARIs, although when used, it was associated with improved antibiotic prescribing.
Overrides of medication-related clinical decision support alerts in outpatients
TLDR
The override rates for medication-related CDS alerts in the outpatient setting, the reasons cited for overrides at the time of prescribing, and the appropriateness of overrides were characterized to improve the relevance of alerts and reduce alert fatigue.
A computer-assisted management program for antibiotics and other antiinfective agents.
TLDR
A computerized antiinfectives-management program linked to computer-based patient records that can assist physicians in the use of antiinfective agents and improve the quality of care and reduce costs is developed.
Variations in Antibiotic Prescribing of Acute Rhinosinusitis in United States Ambulatory Settings
TLDR
Antibiotics were prescribed frequently despite recent consensus guidelines that discourage antibiotic use in mild cases, especially for younger patients and in primary care settings, and this highlights the need to promote awareness of practice guidelines.
