Impact of an electronic health record transition on chemotherapy error reporting.

Hess E, Palmer SE, Stivers A, et al. Journal of Oncology Pharmacy Practice. 2020;26.

This study used one cancer hospital’s incident reporting system to evaluate trends in medication error reporting before and after the implementation of a new electronic health record (EHR) system. After implementation, decreases in reporting were observed for wrong-dose, overdose, wrong duration, and wrong frequency medication errors, likely due to EHR tools such as hard stops on medication doses or prohibiting early or late administration.
