Analysis of aggregate error data to drive prevention efforts

In addition to a full suite of medication safety publications and tools for healthcare professionals and consumers, ISMP produces aggregate data reports based upon reports submitted to ISMP's various error reporting programs. The analysis and use of the data submitted by healthcare practitioners help ISMP identify the factors contributing to errors and system-based risk-reduction strategies. This information can guide practitioners and patients, the healthcare systems, researchers, and policy makers in understanding the causes of medication errors and in designing effective intervention and research strategies.
