iMedicalApps said SafeDose is "useful and well designed... Undoubtedly, the potential for medication errors would be reduced if practitioners were to rely on the information provided by this app".
A university research study published in the Journal of Pediatric Pharmacology and Therapeutics found that after less than 10 minutes of training, the use of eBroselow’s system increased the accuracy of medication doses prepared during simulated pediatric emergencies by nearly 25 percent, and completely eliminated clinically significant errors.
The research also showed that use of the hospital version of eBroselow, as compared to traditional processes, reduced the time required to prepare medication during an emergency.
Used by hundreds of hospitals and many thousands of practitioners, all eBroselow SafeDose medical content is medically reviewed for accuracy.
