NZ HDC calls for nationwide roll-out of electronic systems to reduce drug errors

New Zealand's Health and Disability Commissioner has called for the prioritisation of the roll-out of electronic prescribing and administration systems across the health sector to help reduce the harms caused by medication error.

Commissioner Anthony Hill said he was concerned by the lack of progress in rolling out electronic medicine management systems and an electronic health record that allows a patient’s medication information to follow them through the health system.
