MedLine Citation:
PMID:  23134389     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Hospitals and clinics are adapting to new technologies and implementing electronic health records, but the efforts need to be aligned explicitly with goals for patient safety. EHRs bring the risks of both technical failures and inappropriate use, but they can also help to monitor and improve patient safety.
