A well-established library of order sets is a crucial foundational element to CPOE
Ashe Memorial is one of 60 hospitals that have already selected PatientKeeper CPOE
(Computerized Physician Order Entry) both to meet the physician-facing elements of Stage 1 "Meaningful Use" criteria, and to ensure sufficient physician adoption to comply with the more stringent requirements of Stages 2 and 3.
After go-live, they had to have the patients in-house physically before doing the CPOE
The CDS and CPOE
tools being developed are where significant improvements in quality and savings are expected.
Hospitals that do not have a CPOE
system in place are likely to incur significant inefficiencies if they attempt to achieve full credit for meaningful use under the current timetable.
Despite the apparent benefits of CPOE
systems--a 2009 study by the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative and the New England Healthcare Institute concluded that CPOE
systems could save hospitals up to $2.
We expect CPOE
usage impacts on process outcomes to be non-linear (Appari, Johnson, and Anthony 2013; Jones et al.
We did not use data earlier than 2005 because HIMSS made a significant change in the definition of CPOE
With regard to safety, the initial implementation of CPOE
corrected the medical errors associated with physician order legibility.
systems require extensive network connections and IT support functions.
Clearly building a successful CPOE
system will require an approach to hospital business operations your facility may not have experienced in the past, nor be ready for.
