How to Protect Lives by Integrating Medication Safety Into Your Epic Workflow
Thursday, April 4 from 11:00 AM – 11:45 AM EDT
Solving the usability challenge
A recent study of medication safety in pediatric settings published in Health Affairs magazine revealed that one of every three pediatric medication errors are related to usability issues involving the EHR. Of those, one child out of every six might have suffered harm.
The most common medication error was improper dosing and the prevalent cause was usability challenges associated with system feedback. In other words, clinicians administering medication were confused or didn’t receive sufficient information from their EHR to safely deliver medication.1
Interoperability + usability = medication safety
SafeDose solves that problem by simplifying medication administration to ensure patients get the right dosage of a drug at the right time. SafeDose – now available in Epic’s App Orchard – is purpose built as a visual-based tool to safely and immediately deliver accurate dosing information every time, seamlessly from your Epic application.
When you order a medication in Epic you can call up SafeDose with one click to automatically get the ID of the user for tracking, the weight of the patient, the ordered dose of the medication, and the top indication matches. It’s never been easier for users to quickly get all the information they need to ensure medication safety without every leaving the Epic application.
