Reduction of situational awareness and human-computer interaction problems were associated with CPOE
, as well as change in work pace, sequence, and dynamics.
For administrators, this analysis can help frame the trade-off between missing the meaningful use pay-for-performance (P4P) target dates versus incurring the additional risk associated with accelerating CPOE
implementation to meet the goals (Young 2003).
In November 2005, the hospital introduced the Cerner Corporation (Kansas City, Missouri) Millennium PowerChart (version 2004.01) CPOE
into its work-flow.
CDS embedded into CPOE
frees lab personnel to complete other value-added tasks rather than manually sifting through duplicate order sets, thus furthering the opportunity for better utilization of lab staff time.
systems for hospitals may contain thousands of such alerts, designed to prevent dosing errors, drug allergies, and drug--drug interactions.
On the basis of types, the market is segmented into standalone CPOE
and Integrated CPOE
When nurses encourage healthcare providers to enter a medication order or prescription into the CPOE
, rather than accepting an illegible, handwritten order, safety is promoted.
KLAS also noted that some providers spent as little as 10 to 30 minutes training computer-savvy doctors on PatientKeeper CPOE
; less computer-savvy physicians required more training, but nowhere near the 15 to 20 hours common for conventional CPOE
VersaSuite HIS incorporates advanced Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE
) and Electronic Medication Administration Record (EMAR) systems to help reduce medical errors and provide better quality of care.
Prior to federal mandates coming down (Stage 1 meaningful use requires that more than 30 percent of unique patients with at least one medication in their medication list have at least one medication order entered using CPOE
; Stage 2 requires more than 60 percent of medication, 30 percent of laboratory, and 30 percent of radiology orders created during the EHH reporting period are recorded using CPOE
), MCCG felt that this transition would allow for fewer medical errors, ultimately increasing patient safety, says Delanor Doyle, M.D., CMIO at MCCG.
During the first 3 months of CPOE
, nurses said they were most satisfied when they were able to get help when having problems entering orders.
We assess the impact of computerized physician order entry (CPOE
) systems usage on cost and process quality in the medication management process.
