Microsoft RemoteApp pinged for causing dosage duplication error in SA EMR

A known error that intermittently duplicates keystrokes when using Microsoft’s RemoteApp feature is understood to have caused the issue affecting medication dosages in South Australia’s Sunrise electronic medical record last week.

The error appeared to replicate the last digit for dosages on medication orders, with 10mg being displayed as 100mg and 15mg as 155mg.
