re: CPOE Cuts Medication Errors By 48%, Says Study
ItGs good to see data showing that CPOE reduces medication errors. Even if the data isnGt quantifiable with showing the correlation between ordering errors and adverse drug effects, itGs still useful in showing the capabilities of CPOE. IGm pretty sure that once we get the correct values in place for testing we will see a correlation between reduced medication ordering errors and reduced patient risk.
