Electronic health records, medications, and long-term care

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Electronic health records (EHRs) provide an opportunity to drastically reduce certain errors related to the prescribing and administration of medications. In certain settings, for example, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other long-term care (LTC) environments, the opportunities to use EHR systems that are optimized for the setting and patient population exist now. This chapter describes the advantages in the adoption of the appropriate EHR and the pitfalls linked to poor choices.
