This is an interesting piece of news. However, is anyone really surprised by it? Basically it says that when humans enter something, then they are prone to make mistakes. It doesn’t matter whether its on a computer or handwritten. Sounds about right to me. We’re human and we make mistakes.
Of course, the real question is going forward what can EMR vendors and ePrescribing companies do to change this result?
I also wish the study revealed which ePrescribing software had better results.
