costs and benefits of an integrated medication ordering and delivery system. However, the data used as input for their model substantially overestimate the impact of the various technologies involved. For instance, they assumed that bar-coding would reduce administration errors by 60%. It is unclear where such a high estimate could have come from. One of the few studies examining the impact of bar coding on errors or adverse drug events (as opposed to inventory management) reported routine… CONTINUE READING
