Transcription errors of blood glucose values and insulin errors in an intensive care unit: secondary data analysis toward electronic medical record–glucometer interoperability.
Sowan AK, Vera A, Malshe A, Reed C. JMIR Med Inform. 2019;7:e11873.
This retrospective study examined possible transcription errors for blood glucose values among patients in a surgical intensive care unit for which glucometers did not connect with the electronic health record. Investigators identified multiple insulin dosing errors as a result of transcription errors. They spotlight the need for interoperability between glucometers and electronic health records.
