PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In honor of Patient Safety Awareness Week, March 3-9, 2013, ECRI Institute Patient Safety Organization (PSO) is offering a special discount on two of its most requested resources, usually available only to ECRI Institute PSO members.

The two PSO Deep Dive™ resources, researched and published by the ECRI Institute Patient Safety Organization, are in-depth analyses of health information technology (IT)-related and medication safety events.

"ECRI Institute PSO's first Deep Dive on medication errors uncovered a number of important process issues within hospitals. The second PSO Deep Dive on health IT reinforced that minimizing the unintended consequences of health IT systems and maximizing the poten­tial of health IT to improve patient safety should be an ongoing focus of every healthcare organization," says Karen P. Zimmer , MD, MPH, FAAP, medical director, ECRI Institute PSO. "These resources provide learnings that can improve patient safety, and we at ECRI Institute want to share these findings with the healthcare community."

"PSO Deep Dive™ on Health Information Technology-related Safety Events" emphasizes how well-purposed health IT systems may unintentionally expose patients to harm. Our PSO report provides eight case examples of the health IT-related incidents that could lead to patient harm. The 48-page report with toolkit is intended to alert hospitals and health systems to the unintended consequences of electronic health records. The toolkit should be used to proactively raise awareness of risk considerations when implementing an IT system.

"PSO Deep Dive™ on Medication Safety Events" highlights that medication errors represent the most frequently reported events submitted to ECRI Institute PSO—comprising about 30% of all events. Although errors can occur during any stage of the medication process, ECRI Institute PSO facilities indicated that most events specific to one stage occurred during administration of the medication. The full results are presented in a 36-page report.

Both PSO Deep Dive reports include toolkits to proactively assess potential patient safety risks in these key areas. In recognition of Patient Safety Awareness Week, and to help providers reach the goal of "Patient Safety 7/365: 7 days of recognition, 365 days of commitment to safe care," these resources are being offered for purchase without membership plus $100 off of each report, with coupon code PSO100.

Coupon code PSO100 must be included at the time of purchase to receive the discount, only available for a limited time.
