Unit 6: HIT Facilitated Error—Cause and Effect

Unit 6 is a unit that will focus upon error in health and healthcare that can be facilitated and propagated by HIT.  Different classes of HIT errors (slips/mistakes, omission/commission) will be discussed and differentiated.  Specific scenarios that create opportunities for HIT facilitated error will be presented to students in the lab exercises.  In these exercises, students will apply concepts learned in the didactic portion of this unit to identify error, classify error, analyze root cause, and propose solutions.
