An Introduction to Clinical Governance and Patient Safety

Simon Finney

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses clinical information systems (CIS). When properly implemented, clinical information systems can improve patient safety and reduce medical error. Decision support is a powerful tool to reduce errors of omission and commission. Clinical information systems can enhance the quality and reduce the burden of clinical audit. Unless users can be actively engaged, new systems are likely to fail.
