AGH Earns Award

BERLIN – Medication error is a common threat to patient safety: it is estimated that 7,000 patients die in the U.S. each year as a result of medication errors and a larger number require further treatment. The American Hospital Association points to incomplete patient information – including known allergies and current medications – as one of a handful of principle causes.

Through a $50,000 Cardinal Health Grant, Atlantic General Hospital created a software solution to link hospital and physician office medication and allergy records and thus reduce these kinds of errors.

In recognition of this innovative solution, Atlantic General was recently awarded the 2007 Health Data Management Editors Choice Award for small and medium-sized hospitals at the Third Annual World Healthcare Innovation and Technology Congress in Washington, D.C.
