Human Error vs Computer Error: Effect of Computerized Prescription Entry on Medication Safety


Expiration Date: 10.31.16
Course Goal:
Computerized prescription entry and the automation of systems and processes in the pharmacy have reduced some causes of medication errors, such as those related to illegible prescriber handwriting and misinterpretation of written orders.

To assist pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in further understanding the impact of computerized prescription entry and health information technologies on medication safety, this article discusses the potential benefits and limitations of computerized prescription entry on medication safety and the occurrence of medication errors.
