Hospitals planning to roll out Tablet PCs should follow Lancaster General's lead by gradually introducing the devices while simultaneously explaining why they're needed, says Melinda Costin, vice president of implementation services for Healthlink Inc., a Houston-based consulting firm.
"Nurses often are astounded at how many near-mistakes are found with technology," she says."For instance, a medication order may call for one pill but the package contains two pills."
Hospitals also need to get nurses comfortable with the devices, Costin says.
