Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Electronic prescribing and other health information technologies, such as smart infusion devices, alerts and clinical decision support systems are advocated as strategies to reduce medication errors. The effectiveness of such systems is dependent on human–technology interaction. Pharmacists have a pivotal role in the design, configuration and deployment of these systems.
In this Special Issue of Pharmacy, we are seeking contributions from researchers from all over the world covering aspects such as the following:

  • The impact of health information technologies on medication errors
  • Challenges of implementation and adoption
  • Role of user-centred design
  • Human factors and behaviours

Contributions can be in the form of reviews or original research papers. We also welcome case studies and insightful commentaries. Welcome your submissions to this Special Issue “Electronic Prescribing and Other Innovative Information Technologies to Reduce Medication Errors”.
