EC Report - eHealth for Safety

The European Commission has released a comprehensive report titled eHealth for Safety: Impact of ICT on Patient Safety and Risk Management. Not surprisingly the report is consistent with the CHI Report The relationship between Electronic Health Records and Patient Safety.

The report provides relevant definitions, a discussion of patient risk and safety in practice, ICT applications in healthcare and a summary of research from expert workshops.

This is another important reference for those interested in eHealth and patient safety.
