The best available evidence indicates that although a sizeable percentage of Adverse Drug Events (ADEs) in hospitals and outpatient settings are preventable, relatively few medical errors are detected using today’s common but relatively ineffective paper-based detection methods. It’s estimated that between 30% and 60% of cancer patients receive some form of chemotherapy. Systemic treatment (chemotherapy) is complex to manage and has a narrow therapeutic range: if the dosage is too low the patient will not get the benefits of the treatment; if the dosage is too high it may be toxic and potentially fatal. Yet despite this complexity in cancer care, chemotherapy and other systemic therapies are largely managed by paper-based systems.
