Implementation Notes:

Alerts for abnormal growth values serve two important purposes. The first is prevention of data entry error and encouraging repeat measurements if current values are not consistent with previous measurements or significantly out of range. The second is to encourage intervention for abnormal growth measures that might suggest obesity, eating disorders, or growth failure. Typically abnormal values are considered 2 standard deviations from predicted values. There are no clear guidelines for alerting an abnormal measurement based on prior measurements; therefore, vendors may wish to explore a variety of user interface approaches to detect suspected measurement or data entry errors.
