lliance said, "EHRs have tremendous potential to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare, but like any tool they must be designed and implemented in a way that uses best practices that strive to eliminate medical errors.

"Patient Safety Organizations (PSOs) facilitate a shared-learning approach that supports effective interventions to reduce risk
