Influence of a systems-based approach to prescribing errors in a pediatric resident clinic.

Condren M, Honey BL, Carter SM, et al. Academic pediatrics. 2014;14:485-90.

This study compared an outpatient pediatric clinic with pharmacist prescription medication review and electronic health record customization to one without such systems in place. The clinic with workflow and technology to prevent adverse drug events experienced fewer errors, adding to the evidence that sociotechnical approaches are needed to improve medication safety.
