It’s important for the patients and the hospitals. About 15 years ago there were three quarters of a million Adverse drug event(ADE) reports. With the advent of many EHR and barcode medication administration systems-that number is decreasing everyday.
We need to continue the push:
- Patients who experienced adverse drug events (ADEs) were hospitalized an average of 8 to 12 days longer than patients who did not suffer ADEs, and their hospitalization cost $16,000 to $24,000 more.
- Anywhere from 28 percent to 95 percent of ADEs can be prevented by reducing medication errors through computerized monitoring systems.
- Computerized medication order entry has the potential to prevent an estimated 84 percent of dose, frequency, and route errors.
- Hospitals can save as much as $500,000 annually in direct costs by using computerized systems.
