Medication is an essential part of health care and enables the prevention and treatment of many conditions. However, medication errors and drug-related problems are frequent and cause suffering for patients and substantial costs for society. Information technology in the medication management process has the potential to increase quality, efficiency and safety but can also cause new problems and risks. The seminar will give an overview of the use of information technology in the medication management process in Sweden, describe some of the current problems and discuss the need for improvement.
