Recent Evidence that Health IT Improves Patient Safety

 is a new issue brief that is part of ONC’s ongoing efforts to help answer questions and demonstrate the role health IT plays in patient safety. This is the first of four Issue Briefs on health IT and patient safety we expect to post by September 2015 through a contract with RTI International on a roadmap for a potential health IT safety center. The Issue Brief reviews four systematic literature reviews that used a consistent methodology and finds consistent and significant net benefits on patient safety from the adoption of health IT.
