- Description:Information sheet that describes an AHRQ-funded project to develop tools to help pediatricians adopt and use electronic prescribing.
This research will further scale clinical decision support aimed at preventing the prescription of inappropriate medications to older adults upon discharge from the emergency department.
This project will examine the impact of implementing the e-Prescribing standard CancelRx on outpatient medication discrepancies and on clinic and pharmacy workflows.
This project will develop a method to use video captured electronic health record interactions to analyze the context around medication errors, identify design elements that contributed to the errors, and make design recommendations to mitigate those errors.
This project will evaluate a computerized provider order entry (CPOE)-based function—medication voiding—that can be used to prospectively identify and document medication ordering errors.
This pilot project implemented a Social Knowledge Networking system and concluded that it supported progress toward meaningful use of medication reconciliation technology in an electronic health record.
This project will develop and validate new measures needed for automatically identifying violations of the “Five Rights of Medication Safety”: right patient, right dose, right medication, right route, and right frequency.
This project convened stakeholder panels to inform the development of an indications-enabled computerized prescriber order entry system.
This project will refine the Leapfrog Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE)/Electronic Health Record (EHR) test – a “flight simulator” for EHRs with CPOE which evaluates the safety performance of EHRs after deployment, with a particular focus on high impact patient safety and medication safety problems.
