PURPOSE: The variations in how drug names are displayed in computerized prescriber-order-entry (CPOE) systems were analyzed to determine their contribution to potential medication errors. METHODS: A diverse set of 10 inpatient and outpatient CPOE system vendors and self-developed CPOE systems in 6 U.S. healthcare institutions was evaluated. A team of pharmacists, physicians, patient-safety experts, and informatics experts created a CPOE assessment tool to standardize the assessment of CPOE features across the systems studied...

PURPOSE: Improving medication safety has become a major topic in all clinical settings. Information technology (IT) can play an important role to prevent adverse drug events (ADEs), but data on the effectiveness of IT interventions are controversial. The objective of this paper is to provide a systematic review about the effects of IT interventions on medication safety in primary care. DATA SOURCES: PubMed, International Pharmaceutical Abstracts, EMBASE, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, handsearching reference lists from full-text articles...

OBJECTIVE: to evaluate health personnel perceptions about medical order entry systems concerning the effect on workflow, medication errors risk and assessment of its potential advantages. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A cross-section opinion interview was conducted in a tertiary care hospital. Questionnaire consisted of three sections: perception of its effect on workflow, influence on medication error risk and assessment of potential advantages. We also asked them to assess drawbacks and provide suggestions about this prescription system...

Purpose The implementation of a telepharmacy service to provide round-the-clock medication order review by pharmacists is described. Summary Seven critical access hospitals (CAHs) worked collaboratively as part of a network of hospitals implementing the same electronic health record (EHR), computerized prescriber-order-entry (CPOE) system, and pharmacy information system to serve as the health information technology (HIT) backbone supporting round-the-clock medication order review by pharmacists. Collaboration permitted standardization of workflow policies and procedures...

The goal of Canada Health Infoway is to provide at least 50% of all Canadians with an electronic health record (EHR) by 2010. The goal of the Infoway Drug Information Systems Program is to develop an interoperable drug information system that will keep each patient's medication history: prescribed and dispensed drugs, allergies, ongoing drug treatment, etc. Drug and drug-interaction checks will be performed automatically and added to the patients' drug profiles. Physicians and pharmacists will be supplied with data to support appropriate and accurate prescribing and dispensing, thereby avoiding adverse drug interactions and drug-related deaths [1]...

Computerized provider order entry (CPOE) and clinical decision support improve medication prescribing safety in adults. However, effective therapy for children requires dosing based on circulating medication levels. We examined the introduction of a computerized corollary order for aminoglycoside blood level monitoring. The study was divided into baseline (BP) and corollary order (CP) periods. In the CP, we implemented a workflow-integrated reminder to order blood levels and presented this to the clinician during each aminoglycoside ordering session...
