Israeli hospitals once again seeing malfunctions in medication tracking software

Israeli hospitals are again having problems with a widely used medical software system.

As it has in recent weeks, the system, called Chameleon, is failing to properly manage information about patients’ medications. On January 30, the Health Ministry announced that there had been problems over the prior week but that they had been fixed.

With the renewed failures in the system, the ministry has advised all hospitals that use it to keep backup handwritten records on patient medications.
