The Center for Patient Safety Research and Practice at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston will study medication errors reported as being associated with computerized physician order entry systems.

The not-for-profit National Patient Safety Foundation in Boston has awarded a $99,918 grant for the research. Milpitas, Calif.-based Quantros Inc., operator of the MEDMARX database of more than 1.5 million anonymous reports of medication errors, will partner with the center in the year-long research project. About 800 hospitals and health systems have contributed data to MEDMARX.
