Medication History and its Role in Patient Safety

Mar 08, 2011

Based on the feedback from hundreds of organizations, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement estimates that poor communication of medical information at transition points is responsible for as many as 50 percent of all medication errors and up to 20 percent of adverse drug events in the hospital.

Is your organization struggling with any of the following?

  • Obtaining accurate patient medication history
  • Inaccurate and/or incomplete medication history data resulting in avoidable medication errors
