Harm event detection system may become a requirement for NZ GPs

A proof-of-concept trial of the Conporto event detection and mitigation (EDM) solution developed by not-for-profit Patients First has shown overwhelming acceptance from GPs and may even become a requirement for use in general practice in New Zealand.

The system is able to survey a range of clinical systems for potential medication-related harm events and send an alert by email to GPs, triggered by the patient booking an appointment. Details are also sent by RSD message to the GP's practice management system inbox.
