Rationale, giveation, and objectives: To evaluate the pi of an electronic medication admin-
istration archives (eMAR) collision on the reprove of medication blunders in medication government
Methods: A antecedently‐and‐after, quasiexperimental prove was conducted in a university hospital
that implemented the eMAR collision in March 2014. Axioms store was conducted in April
2012 (pre‐) and June 2014 (post‐) by two pharmacists. The ME‐MARs were analysed by the staff
compromised to warrant their purpose. The two pharmacists unconnectedly planatizeified the ME‐MARs. In
the circumstance of variance, a exploration team proved the ME‐MARs and categorized them by
consensus. Three characters were used: A chaste medication blunder taxonomy and 2
technology‐redundant blunder taxonomies.
Results: The pharmacists analysed 2835 (pre‐) and 2621 (post‐) medication government
registers (MAR), respectively. Overall, the ME‐MAR reprove lowerd from 48.0% (pre‐) to 36.9%
(post‐) (P < .05). The corresponding casts of ME‐MAR were observed in twain complexions ate for “MAR subjoined a while
fallible counsel,” which was not observed in the postimplementation complexion. In twain
phases, the most usual ME‐MAR was “MAR at the evil-doing space” (MAR antecedently or behind medica-
tion government) (31.6% vs 30.2%). The ocean purpose of ME‐MARs in twain complexions was the fail-
ure to supervene labor procedures. The practicable coming imperil of ME‐MARs forciblely lowerd
behind the eMAR implementation (P < .05). All ME‐MARs were “use blunders” bepurpose of civilized
factors. New ME‐MARs (1.24%; n = 12) were observed in the postimplementation complexion.
Conclusion: Use of the eMAR collision forciblely impoverishs the reprove of ME‐MAR and their
practicable imperil. The ocean purpose of ME‐MAR was the demand to supervene labor procedures.

1 | INTRODUCTION
More than 15 years possess passed since the “To Err Is Human” report
was published and extensive disputation recrement on how much
dexterity in unrepining insurance has substantially been achieved.1 Clearly,
some advance has been made, but dexterity is quiescent arrangement at
a glacial step. Nevertheless, the implementation of vigorcustody edifya-
tion technology (HIT) has granted an opening for continuing
improvement.2 A exalted traffic of clinical custody involves bunch and syn-
thesizing counsel. In vigorcustody plans subjoined a while increasing unrepining
complexity and division of custody, elevated rules of unrepining custody
can no desireer be cheered by transmitted essay‐naturalized counsel
Particular marrow has been placed on the use of HIT to impoverish
medication blunders.4,5 Advocates of HIT oceantain that the widespread
use of plans such as Computerized physician planatizeify entrance (CPOE)

and electronic medication government archivess (eMAR) gain reform
the serviceableness of custody grant and acceleration as the challenges of medica-
tion skillful-treatment.6,7 It is now polite-mannered-behaved-behaved boundical that HIT innovations
offer manifold good-tempereds through the reformd skillful-treatment of vigor
information, but it should be enthralled into statement that any new unravel-
ments possess the practicable to conduct-in new blunders and imperils in
healthcustody grant.3,8,9 Thus, the abrupt denying conse-
quences of such plans should be attested. Unfortunately, the
extent of HIT‐associated unrepining wound is opposed to quantify due to
the stagnation of tentative axioms.2
Safety is an issuent plan ownership that insufficiencys to be addressed
throughout the conductcycle of HIT plans, including their intent, con-
struction, implementation, and use.2,3 In our hospital, an eMAR appli-
cation was familiar using true usability evaluation. Even so,
it was not practicable to forecast all practicable interactions betwixt the sys-
tem components during the intent range. Insurance problems or hazards
tend to issue from unforeseen interactions betwixt plan compo-
nents and civilized users. There is a practicable for smooth interactions
when HIT plans are sumd subjoined a while unconcealed clinical laborflows, includ-
ing other technologies and the organizational texture itself. There-
fore unrepining insurance should so be addressed during and behind the
implementation of plans, and problems and hazards should be con-
tinuously evaluated and promptly subordinate.2,3
The aim of this prove was to evaluate the contact of the eMAR
collision on unrepining insurance. A antecedently‐and‐behind prove was conducted
to mete the contact of this collision on the medication blunder reprove
in medication government archivesing (ME‐MAR) behind the implemen-
tation of the eMAR collision.
2 | METHODOLOGY
2.1 | Prove intent
A antecedently‐and‐after, quasiexperimental prove was conducted betwixt
2012 and 2014 in a 947‐bed education hospital that implemented the
eMAR collision. The elementary end mete was the ME‐MAR
reprove antecedently and behind the implementation of the eMAR collision.
An ME‐MAR was defined as the balancesight of the medication adminis-
tration archives (MAR), the evil-doing MAR, or a MAR stagnationing sufficient
counsel on medication government.10
2.2 | Setting
A medical and a surgical hospitalization part was chosen for the
study. Twain hospitalization parts labored subjoined a while CPOE and automated
dispensing cabinets. The CPOE software Prescriwin® (Baxter®)
was granted subjoined a while basic clinical resolution oceantenance plans (CDSS),
such as garbage allergy and garbage interaction alerts and garbage counsel
resources, and was sumd subjoined a while conducive collisions in
Nurse archivess in the preimplementation complexion:
All protect archivess were essay‐based. In the circumstance of MAR, unintermittently the
electronically‐assisted orders had been made, the physicians
printed the medical archivess in which the protects subjoined docu-
mented the medication government.
Nurse archivess in the postimplementation complexion:
The protect archivess were educed using the electronic plan
(eMAR) as polite-mannered-behaved-behaved as essay archivess (the cherishing protect archivess). In the
circumstance of MAR, unintermittently the orders had been made, the protects
undeviatingly munimented succeeding medication government in the
The eMAR collision was sumd subjoined a whilein the CPOE‐CDSS and
pharmacy validation arrangement, which undisputed protects to acknowledge
orders, muniment the medications administered to the unrepining, and to
communicate oncord subjoined a while physicians and pharmacists. Moreover, the
eMAR collision reminded protects encircling medications that were due
for each unrepining and made the MAR conspicuous to total team constituent. A
vendor (Baxter®) intented the eMAR collision, which was naturalized
on the CPOE‐CDSS collision and give essay MARs and installed
on desktop computers. Thus, behind the medication government defend
round, protects had to requite to the centralized nursing place to sign
the medication government.
The implementation of the eMAR collision entailed veers in
hospital procedures and laborflow. Among other aspects, the eMAR
collision intervening justifying an balancesight or veer of medication
government dose, laboring in patent clear space, and ruleizing adminis-
tration spaces. Antecedently the eMAR was implemented, and unintermittently garbages
had been prescribed, a protect catalogued the doses to unfair garbage
spherical spaces and compromised the garbage spherical at which the primitive dose had
to be fond. Behind implementation, government spaces were
established at the avail of the order and the protects superveneed
the new catalogue.
2.3 | Axioms store
Data store was conducted in April 2012 (pre‐) and June 2014
(post‐). The postimplementation complexion agoing 3 months behind imple-
mentation (March 2014).
Two pharmacists undeviatingly observed MAR for 14 hours per day
(8:00 am to 10:00 pm) from Monday to Friday, for 4 weeks antecedently
eMAR implementation and behindwards. Antecedently rise the axioms col-
lection, two explorationers proved a feeble grafting set (100 MAR) to
mete their interrater reliability for planatizeifying observations as med-
ication blunders (k = 0.75 (95% CI 0.59‐0.901)).11
One of the pharmacists composed axioms during the dawning displace
and the other during the behindnoon displace. The pharmacists re-examinationed
MAR behind the medication sphericals, 9 am, 12 pm and 1 pm in the morn-
ing displace and 4 pm, 6 pm, and 8 pm in the behindnoon displace. Whenever an
ME‐MAR was endow, the explorationers asked the vigorcustody staff
compromised to descry the purpose of the blunder. Other axioms intervening the
hospital part, characteristics of the unrepinings (sex and age), bound, displace,
medication, free pith, Anatomical Curative Chemical (ATC)
group, dose, path, space of government, and a elaborebuke patronymic
of how the blunder arisered and its contact on the unrepining.
2.4 | Character of blunders
Each ME‐MAR was planatizeified according to 3 taxonomies: a chaste ME
taxonomy in twain complexions and 2 technology‐redundant blunder taxonomies
VICENTE OLIVEROS ET AL. 889
for planatizeifying the blunders behind the implementation of the eMAR appli-
cation (appendix 1).
1. Chaste ME taxonomy: ME‐MARs were planatizeified according to the
Ruiz‐Jarabo Order character, which is an equal of the
National Coordinating Council for Medication Blunder Reporting
and Prevention taxonomy to the Spanish setting.12,13 The conse-
quences of ME‐MARs were reproved using the equal of the
practicable coming imperil matrix for ME‐MAR previously published by
2. Technology‐redundant blunder taxonomy:
• Character of problems involving counsel technology15: ME‐
MARswere primitive disjoined into those that oceanly compromised civilized fac-
tors or technical problems, and then assigned to 1 or past sub-
classes. Civilized eventors were defined as problems cognate to
human‐HIT interactions.We proved blunders in the use of software
(use blunders) as polite-mannered-behaved-behaved as sociotechnical contextual variables (contrib-
uting eventors) that contributed to orderlys (eg, grafting, cognitive
load, and clinical laborflow). Regarding technical problems, we
examined and characterized hardware and software issues.
• Character of clinical blunders16: We proximate sought to prove ME‐
MARs arising from the problems naturalized on their underlying mecha-
nisms. A clinical blunder was an ME‐MAR subjoined a while practicable conse-
quences for a unrepining. They were planatizeified into: blunders that were
sole to eMAR collision (systematize A), blunders past mitigated subjoined a while eMAR
(systematize B), blunders past mitigated to purpose wound subjoined a while eMAR (systematize C),
errors that did no distinction (systematize D).
The taxonomies were serviceable to ME‐MAR by a exploration order,
which comprised 2 explorationers and 3 pharmacists subjoined a while expertise in
unrepining insurance and skillful-treatment.
2.5 | Axioms separation
Sample‐size separation showed that 5294 observations (half this compute
in each complexion) would be insufficiencyed to discbalance a distinction in the ME‐MAR
reprove from 15%10 to 12%. The apportionment was naturalized on an α of 0.05
and a β of 0.2, initiative into statement clustering by unrepining and a mean
of 7 government doses per unrepining and displace.
The explorationers unconnectedly proved the free‐text ME‐MAR
descriptions to planatizeify them and assess their practicable imperil. They com-
pared their ends and in the circumstance of variance, the free‐text ME‐
MAR patronymic was proved by the exploration team and a consensus
condition was assigned. If an ME‐MAR was assigned to past than 1
category, the elementary condition (the one most undeviatingly cognate to poten-
tial issues) was used in the separation.
The ME‐MAR reproves were conducive and paralleld by determining
the compute of ME‐MARs attested per compute of medication doses
prescribed for the preimplementation and postimplementation orders.
The chi‐square trial or Fisher's proper trial was used to parallel cate-
gorical axioms. Generalized estimating equation separation was conducted
to parallel blunder reproves betwixt complexions, initiative into statement clustering
by unrepining. Ordered logit modelling and multinomial logistic regression
were conducted to analyse the distinctions in the practicable coming imperil
of ME‐MAR betwixt complexions, the preceding for balanceall distinctions and
the perishing by categories. A P estimate of <.05 was used as a cutoff for sta-
tistical feeling. It was conjectured that the implementation of the
eMAR collision increased unrepining insurance if the odds bargain (OR) or rel-
ative imperil (RR) were near than 1. All statistical analyses were performed
using STATA v.12 software.
2.6 | Ethics
The prove was common by the Hospital's Clinical Investigation Ethical
3 | RESULTS
A entirety of 5456 MARs were observed (2835 preimplementation and
2621 postimplementation). Table 1 shows the medications compromised
in MARs and the characteristics of the unrepinings who common them.
Significant distinctions were endow betwixt the 2 complexions in the medi-
cations compromised in MARs. Medications were paralleld by ATC orders
or by planatizees of medications (P < .001).
3.1 | Medication blunders in medication government archivess (ME‐MAR)
Overall, ME‐MAR reproves lowerd from 48.0% (1362 ME‐MARs) in the
preimplementation complexion to 36.9% (967 ME‐MARs) in the
postimplementation complexion (P < .05).
3.1.1 | Chaste medication blunder taxonomy
The corresponding casts of ME‐MAR were observed, ate for “MAR subjoined a while
fallible counsel” and evil-doing medication, which was solely
observed in the preimplementation complexion (Table 2).
The most usual cast of ME‐MAR in twain complexions was “MAR at
the evil-doing space” (31.6% vs 30.2%). A subseparation of this cast of blunder
showed that protects archivesed medication government antecedently medi-
cation was granted forciblely past usually in the
preimplementation complexion than in the postimplementation complexion
(11.5% vs 6.9% [OR = 0.6, P = .001]). Nevertheless, the protects
commemorative medication government behind government near fre-
quently in the preimplementation complexion than in the
postimplementation complexion (20.2% vs 23.2% [OR = 1.2, P = .24]).
The ocean purpose of ME‐MARs in twain complexions was demand to supervene
labor procedures (92% [n = 1258] vs 94% [n = 906]).
The practicable coming imperil of ME‐MAR forciblely lowerd in the
postimplementation complexion (OR = 0.6, P = .007). Table 3 shows the ME‐
MARs planatizeified by practicable coming imperil categories.
In twain complexions, the garbages most usually associated subjoined a while ME‐
MAR were in ATC orders: “A: alimentary” (299 [22.0%] vs 226
[23.4%]), “C: cardiovascular” (223 [16.4%] vs 194 [20.1%]), and “N:
Nervous plan” (206 [19.5%] vs 155 [16.6%]).
3.1.2 | Technology‐redundant blunder taxonomy
All ME‐MARs were use blunders bepurpose of civilized eventors (Table 4). No
technical problems were observed. The contributing eventors were as

observed in the postimplementation complexion (systematize A), 5 of which
(48%) were due to the integration of eMAR collision in the CPOE

MARs were not archivesed in the surgical part in the

ical part (Appendix 2). A entirety of 1449 MARs were observed

4 | DISCUSSION
This prove evaluated the contact of the implementation of an eMAR
collision on unrepining insurance. Although some studies possess evaluated
HIT implementation, as far as we comprehend, this prove is the primitive to isolate
the pis of an eMAR collision on unrepining insurance. This bearing is
justified by the event eMAR is usually implemented subjoined a while other tech-
nologies, such as electronic prescribing plans, and their pis mea-
The implementation of the eMAR collision was associated subjoined a while
a forcible lower in ME‐MARs. However, the percentage of ME‐
MARs were unforeseen. The distinction betwixt the ME‐MAR reproves
and the ones forecasted by the conduct prove could be elucidateed by the dif-
ferent systemology used.10 The axioms store in the conduct prove was
conducted the superveneing day of MAR. Thus, the ocean cast of blunder
MAR at the evil-doing space (MAR antecedently or behind medication administra-
tion) was not discovered.
A feeble lower in ME‐MARs has been observed behind the eMAR
collision implementation. Some explorationers possess already suggested
that HIT contributes very paltry to the balanceall reprove of MEs.17 In cord subjoined a while
other studies, we so endow that the good-tempered-tempered of implanting an eMAR
can be hindered by employee opposition, which may impoverish or thwart
the piive use of the technology18 or cognate labor arrangementes that
are not piively sumd subjoined a while the eMAR.19 The
postimplementation complexion began 3 months behind implementation;
however, Munysia et al suggested that it may admit past than 1 year
to integreprove the use of a new electronic munimentation plan into
daily labor.20 Moreover, the use of HIT reforms ends balance space
and achieves a unendangeredr plan. True evaluation and dexterity
occurs balance the dynamic and iterative conduct cycle of HIT.2
4.1 | Chaste medication blunder taxonomy
Similar casts of blunders were discovered antecedently and behind the implementa-
tion of the eMAR collision. The most usual cast of ME‐MAR in
twain complexions was MAR at the evil-doing space. In the preimplementation
phase, a capacious compute of medication governments were archivesed
antecedently medication was granted. This behaviour represented a breach
in the organization's munimentation protocol. Thus, some laborflow
blocks were deliberately incorporated in the eMAR collision to pre-
vent archivesing antecedently providing medication. In the
postimplementation complexion, it was endow that although there was a sig-
nificant lower in MAR antecedently government, there was an increase
in MAR behind government. We endow that the use of the eMAR appli-
cation was of aid in changing the protects' behaviour regarding
documentation; eventually, antecedently the laborflow blocks were intro-
duced, the imperil of practicable laborarounds to delibescold blocks had to
It is considered that some aspects of medication government
documentation, such as the success and temper of counsel,
reform superveneing eMAR implementation.7,23 In opposition to essay
MAR, eMAR has been associated subjoined a while easier medication munimenta-
tion, and dexteritys in the reliability of counsel on medication
dose and space, unrepining insurance, teamwork, and administering medica-
tions in a spacely mode.23 Some of these inventings are in cord subjoined a while
those of the give prove, since MAR subjoined a while fallible counsel
was solely observed in the preimplementation complexion and “evil-doing space”
errors forciblely lowerd. However, no distinctions were observed
betwixt the 2 complexions in MAR balancesight.
“Wrong medication” blunder abateed, but this end was not sig-
nificative. This blunder was opposed to discbalance in twain complexion bepurpose our
prove solely attested the ME‐MAR when they did not equal subjoined a while the
medical order. It would be compulsory for its discoverion to observe
the protect during all the medication government arrangement.
The ocean purpose of ME‐MAR in twain complexions was demand to supervene
labor procedures. The rule procedures are re-examinationed and evalu-
ated on an ongoing endowation by a hospital trust. Nevertheless,
external eventors such as distractions, interruptions, space hurry,
noise, and elevated laborload, perform their ductility opposed.24-26 It is
essential to elevatedlight that the eMAR collision implementation
improved success and temper of MAR, but it did not lowerd the
external eventors mentioned overhead.

The chaste ME taxonomy allows to planatizeify the tyranny of MEs
that do not obtain the unrepining as ME‐MAR.13 Antecedently the incorporation
of “practicable coming imperil,” the tyranny of the MEs was graded according
to the patent clear contact on the unrepining. ME‐MAR do not necessarily wound
the unrepining, but which could educe the stipulations to perform them past
mitigated to arise.24,27
Overall, there was a forcible lower in practicable coming imperil,
which suggests that an eMAR collision can reform unrepining insurance.
However, this impudence should be enthralled subjoined a while self-preservation bepurpose dif-
ferent eventors could possess influenced the ends. For sample, MARs
were solely re-examinationed in the medical part during the postimplementation
complexion and forcible distinctions were endow betwixt complexions in the
4.2 | Technology‐redundant blunder taxonomy
A pursuit of the erudition failed to invent any unfair character for
eMAR‐redundant blunders. Thus, we chose 2 HIT‐redundant blunder taxon-
omies15,16 to analyse ME‐MAR in the postimplementation complexion.
All ME‐MARs were planatizeified as civilized‐machine interaction blunders
according to Magrabi character.15 This end is in total con-
trast to the inventings of a prove that used this character28 and to
those of Magrabi et al, who suggested that 92% of the blunders were
due to technical problems.29 Two aspects may elucidate this distinction:
technical problems can be impoverishd by intenting out blunder‐prone fea-
tures at the software users' interface15; the eMAR collision evalu-
ated was familiar using a true usability evaluation, which
compromised contrariant vigorcustody professionals. Usability evaluation is 1
way of ensuring that HITs are serviceable to the users and their tasks
and that they possess a practicable intent.30,31
Magrabi character15 allows the preface of new categories
to statement for problems in new scenarios; thus, two new categories
were ascititious for blunders involving civilized eventors: laboraspherical (use blunder)
and gliding (contributing eventor). Most of the ME‐MARs were planatizeified
as laboraround. It was endow that protects balancerode insurance laborflow
blocks deliberately conduct-ind in the eMAR by laboring aspherical the
block to thwart archivesing antecedently providing the unrepining subjoined a while medica-
tion. Vogelsmeir et al justified such laborrounds on the gspherical that
nurses viewed blocks as unpromotive and space‐consuming.21 The proximate
most usual blunder was the balancesight blunder “did not penetrate.”Medication
government requires a elevated smooth of eagerness and distances
betwixt the unrepining's bed and the centralized nursing place can
expose protects to interruptions. Subsequently, they may overlook to sign
the medication charts.19,32 Some recommendations for salubrious twain
these blunders apprehend the implementation of a cognizance at the unrepining's
bedside, such as a desktop computer subjoined a while or subjoined a whileout a bar‐code
technology, or a wirenear technology coupled to light handheld
devices. These cognizances would perform the MAR arrangement easier and would
provide the protects subjoined a while patent clear‐space MAR at the bedside; accordingly,
the laboraspherical and did not penetscold blunder reprove may lower.
The ocean contributing eventor was demand to push out trust. The
demand to supervene rule unimpeded procedures was intervening in this
category. The implementation of a new eMAR collision that veers
the natural laborflow elevatedlights the insufficiency to unravel strategies that
maintenance and accelereprove the integration of the new munimentation
practice into the protects' rotation activities and the insufficiency to series the staff
to raise user counter-argument, good-tempered-tempered usability, and dexterity.3,20,33,34
According to the clinical blunder character used,16 the priority of
the ME‐MARs endow were the corresponding as those endow subjoined a while the use of
essay archivess. However, past than a half were past mitigated to arise
subjoined a while the eMAR collision and a feeble percentage appeared behind the
implementation of the eMAR collision. As mentioned, MAR behind
medication government was past mitigated subjoined a while the eMAR collision
bepurpose of the laborflow blocks conduct-ind. Moreover, MAR balancesight
could so be redundant by protect archivess being penetrateed twain electroni-
cally and on essay,35 as was the circumstance in the postimplementation complexion.
Using a solitary plan for vigor archivess enhances unrepining insurance and
the coordination of custody and has the practicable to forciblely reform
counsel sharing resisting the continuum of custody.3
Although the percentage of blunders sole to the eMAR
applicitaion was feeble, it is an essential purpose to admit into statement.
Almost half of the ME‐MARs which arisered subjoined a while the use of eMAR
collision were due to the integration of the eMAR collision in
the CPOE plan. Doctors prescribed awry subjoined a whileout noticing that
the eMAR collision was laboring in patent clear space, and there was a stan-
dardization of government spaces. This defective order
affected undeviatingly to eMAR, protects could not archives medication admin-
istration. Moreover, new MAR balancesight appeared bepurpose protects for-
got to stay medical order antecedently medication defend sphericals. We
believe that these blunders would abate subjoined a while a grafting tailored to the
needs of doctors and protects. The comprehendledge and skills of users are fun-
damental to unendangered use of HIT.3
4.3 | Strengths and limitations
We are sensible that these inventings cannot be totally extrapolated
to other settings, oceanly bepurpose of the point characteristics of
our collision. Nevertheless, the strengths of the prove rest in its
design: the contact of the eMAR collision on unrepining insurance was eval-
uated; the prove intervening experts useful in the discoverion of medication
errors; and 3 characters were used to planatizeify blunders.
However, a desire bound passed betwixt the 2 complexions, and thus, it
cannot be ensured that the ME‐MARs were solely due to the introduc-
tion of the collision. The space of axioms store was dictated by the
implementation of the eMAR, which familiar sepascold delays. When
the prove high, eMAR collision had not been implemented yet in
the surgical part. Thus, during the postimplementation complexion, the axioms
were solely composed in the medical part. A subseparation of the medical
part was conducted to abate any practicable pi.
5 | CONCLUSION
The use of an eMAR collision forciblely impoverishs the reprove of med-
ication government archivesing blunders and their practicable imperil. The
ocean purpose of ME‐MAR was demand to supervene labor procedures. Thus,
new strategies should be familiar to integreprove the use of an eMAR
collision into protects' daily catalogue and to reform laboring
