Review the scenario, and write a 3-4 page paper, answering the questions below.
A 410-bed hospital has been using a homegrown provider order entry system for 5 years. It has
recently decided to put in bar code administration software to scan medications at the time of
delivery in order to decrease medical error.
The administration is concerned about medication errors, top-level administration is concerned about
meeting The Joint Commission accreditation standards, and the IT department is worried that the
scanners may not be reliable and may break, increasing their costs.
The plan is to have a scanner in each patient?s room; nurses will scan the medication when they get
to the room and also scan their own badges and the patient?s arm band. The application makes it
possible to print out a list of the patients with their scan patterns and the nurses sometimes carry this
printout because patient?s arm bands can be difficult to locate or nurses do not want to disturb
patients while they are sleeping.
The bar code software was purchased from a vendor and the facility has spent about a year refining
it. The IT department is responsible for implementation and has decided that it will implement each
of the four inpatient settings one at a time at 6-month intervals.
The hospital administration wants to conduct an evaluation study. You are assigned to be the lead
on the evaluation.
