|disconnected prescribing systems||0||11:00, 10 July 2017|
If more than one system is in use or implemented for the process of prescribing, preparation, dispensing and administration then there may be a need to duplicate data entry into multiple systems. This can negate the benefits of any one system and can actually contribute to further medication errors and incomplete patient healthcare records.
I am wondering if this should be a little stronger, in NSW a unit like an ICU may have three electronic systems where a patients drugs will be charted and need to be given in the one day (ICU system, central EMR, MOSAIQ) and none of these talk to each other. There is also a disconnect between impatient and out patient therapy.
