Using BPI and emerging technology to improve patient safety.

Author information

  • 1INTEGRIS Health, Oklahoma City, USA.


Capitalizing on existing IT investments, INTEGRIS Health, a 15-hospital system in Oklahoma, is applying business process integration (BPI) methodology and technology to leverage legacy systems and staff resources. The resulting project uses manual (human) and system tasks to compare real-time information across systems to eliminate preventable adverse drug events caused by medication ordering errors. Clinicians can quickly see where potential safety risks are occurring and change medication orders to prevent harm to the patient.
