March 6, 2006

Wolters Kluwer Health (WKHealth), the leading drug and health information provider, today announced that Healthcare Management System, Inc., (HMS) a Nashville-based healthcare company that provides information technology systems to more than 450 community hospitals nationwide, has licensed Medi-Span's Drug Dosing & Administration Database (DDAD). An Institute of Medicine study showed that four out of 10 Americans and one-third of practicing physicians have been the victim of medical errors, and a Harvard Medical School study found that 20 percent of medical errors are due to incorrect drug dosing.
