Clinical Rationale/Problem Solved
Aim 1: Medication administration errors are among the most common types of medical errors
Aim 2: Are the algorithms feasible in other environments and settings, and what customization is needed?
Aim 3: Smart infusion pumps are a source for new types of administration errors
Aim 1: Reduction of administration errors with high-risk medications.
Aim 2: Prove that the algorithms are generalizable depending on workflows and data of the setting.
Aim 3: More robust detection and mitigation of medication administration errors.
