The Detroit Medical Center Pioneers New EMR System Preventing Medication Mistakes
Date:3/12/2009

CEO Michael Duggan noted that the recent introduction of EMR is only the latest in a long series of pioneering breakthroughs for the eight hospitals in the system. "With the launch of electronic medical record-keeping, the DMC is once again leading the nation in pioneering technology designed to improve medical care for patients," said Duggan.

"DMC physicians conducted the world's first successful pump-assisted open-heart surgery here in the 1950s," he added, "and DMC researchers only a few decades later synthesized the first effective AIDS drug [AZT]. With the installation of EMR throughout all eight of our hospitals, the DMC has once again broken new ground in the continuing effort to make treatment better for hospital patients."

Dr. Thomas Malone, DMC Harper University Hospital and Hutzel Women's Hospital president, noted that "study after study shows that EMR can have a major impact in reducing the medical errors that often occur when doctors write out prescriptions by hand, or when dispensing nurses misread their instructions on medical charts.

"There's no question that the yearly toll caused by medical errors is one of the great tragedies of modern medicine," he added. "But there's a great deal of research out there to show that the kind of electronic record-keeping now taking place daily at the DMC can eliminate a high percentage of these potentially lethal mistakes."

Mike Valentine, Cerner executive vice president and U.S. general manager, noted that "The DMC's long-standing commitment to using technology to improve patient care puts it in the top percentage of healthcare organizations nationwide that have automated time-consuming and error-prone paper-based processes.

"We commend the leadership and clinicians at the DMC for their continued dedication to seeking out innovations that allow them to improve the quality of care they provide to patients," said Valentine. '/>"/>
