15428. Computerized Medication Prescribing: A High Tech Solution to the Problem of Medication Errors. This paper provides an overview and analysis of one important method for preventing and reducing medication errors: electronic drug prescribing. It is argued that electronic drug prescribing has the potential to dramatically reduce medication errors and their related adverse drug events by directly addressing errors and/or problems which occur during the ordering process by ensuring the legibility of prescriptions, correcting for misspelling or inadvertent ‘wrong choice' drugs, and alerting the prescribing physician to proper dosing, potential drug interactions and patient contraindications, and alternative "better" choice medications. It is further argued that electronic drug prescribing will serve to reduce medication errors and related ADEs by improving physician-nurse medication-related communication and contributing to improvements in nursing efficiency which will in turn lead to better patient care and patient safety. 12 pages, 34 footnotes, 20 bibliographic references.   $84
