IV Drug Compatibility Nursing Decision Support

Any organizations have any form of decision support within their EHR systems to assist nursing with IV drug compatibility? For example, embedded hyperlinks to Trissels in MAR, active alerting when two incompatible medications are "linked" to infuse through the same lumen, etc...

There's some interest from our nursing team in exploring but struggling to determine what might actually be feasible.

Appreciate your insight!
