Chapter 24. Pharmacy Informatics: Enabling Safe and Efficacious Medication Use

++
++
++

Which of the following represents the correct order of the medication use process?

++
++
++

a. Monitoring, prescribing, transcribing, administration, follow-up

++
++

b. Prescribing, transcribing, dispensing, administration, monitoring

++
++

c. Transcribing, dispensing, administration, monitoring, documentation

++
++

d. Assessment, prescribing, transcribing, administration, monitoring

++
++

e. None of the above

++
++
++

Pharmacy informatics includes:

++
++
++

a. People

++
++

b. Information

++
++

c. Technology

++
++

d. a and b

++
++

e. a, b, and c

++
++
++

The two primary types of information used in pharmacy informatics include:

++
++
++

a. Patient specific and clinical expertise

++
++

b. Clinical expertise and knowledge based

++
++

c. Patient specific and knowledge based

++
++

d. Referential and guidelines

++
++

e. None of the above

++
++
++

The primary similarity between CPOE and e-prescriptions is they:

++
++
++

a. Are easy to implement because they do not disrupt workflow

++
++

b. Both address the dispensing stage of the medication use process

++
++

c. Eliminate illegible prescriptions

++
++

d. Eliminate all errors related to prescribing

++
++

e. c and d

++
++
++

The role of Surescripts is to:

++
++
++

a. Certify controlled substance schedule II prescriptions for authenticity

++
++

b. Provide the communication network for e-prescriptions

++
++

c. Create standards for CPOE transmission

++
++

d. Define Meaningful Use standards

++
++

e. Provide financial support for e-prescription adoption

++
++
++

The three components of clinical decision support systems include:

++
++
++

a. CPOE system, transmission network, transmission standards

++
++

b. Knowledge base, e-prescription network, transmission standards

++
++

c. Communication mechanism, knowledge base, CPOE system

++
++

d. Inference engine, knowledge base, communication mechanism

++
++

e. None of the above
