Title

Using Technology to Improve Patient Safety

Summary

Prescription and medications errors account for significant costs and loss of life and many are due to inaccruate knowledge, for example of concomitant medications. Technology can help prescribers and caregivers ensure that medicines are provided safely. Community carers are front line in receiving valuable patient data. By using systmes which allow accurate tracking and reporting of medications and physiological data better decisons can be made leading to enhanced patient care.
