Medication errors: prescribing faults and prescription errors.
Medication errors are a major cost to health care systems. Two major causes of these error are mis-written prescriptions and inaccurate interpretation of prescriptions by patients. We created a two-sided iOS application, which encourages accurate prescription writing without the use of forms, and provides explicit medication instructions to patients through a customized medication schedule. At the heart of this solution exists an algorithm which converts raw prescription text into a structured form.
