Iconic Health - Data Visualization to Reduce Medication Errors

Posted Nov 18 2008 12:13am

Iconic Health- Data Visualization to Reduce Medication Errors: " At least 1.5 million Americans are harmed each year by avoidable medication errors. The extra medical costs of treating medication-related injuries occurring in hospitals alone is estimated to be $3.5 billion a year.

Traditional medication lists in Electronic Medical Records and ePrescribing systems are text based and include no more than 5 pieces of information about each of the patient’s medications. Medication IconoGraphs are designed for use wherever a patient’s medication list is displayed to prescribers, dispensers or patients. A set of IconoGraphs create an enriched medication list designed for rapid
assimilation. In a small screen space, IconoGraphs intuitively display at least 14 pieces of clinically relevant information per drug. "

Clever use of graphics to provide a lot of valuable information at one glance !
