Case not closed: prescription errors 12 years after computerized physician order entry implementation.
Approach to Improving Safety
Setting of Care
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.
