REVIEW OF REPORTED CLINICAL INFORMATION SYSTEM ADVERSE EVENTS IN US FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION DATABASES
Risa B. Myers, Stephen L. Jones, and Dean F. Sittig

Routine maintenance on the Australian Medicare patient verification system caused an estimated 1,300-1,800 pathology report results to be assigned to the wrong family member (2). A drug formulary update altered the default and alternate dosage amounts for certain medications (3). These are just a few examples of the risks and consequences of updating Clinical Information Systems (CISs) reported recently in the mainstream press.
