Changing how medication alerts are presented in electronic medical records resulted in safer prescribing, increased efficiency and reduced workloads for healthcare providers who placed drug orders, according to a Veterans Affairs study.
“The VA electronic medical record system is one of the most widely used and respected EMR systems in the country,” Alissa L. Russ, PhD, a human factors engineer who led the study, said in a news release. “This EMR is used by providers at over 150 VA hospitals.
