This observational study found that prescription errors were less frequent in 2007, shortly after computerized physician order entry implementation, than in 2015. Changes to decision support in 2015 led to a subsequent reduction in errors in 2016. The authors argue for surveillance of electronic prescribing in order to detect medication errors.
