In 2009, approximately 1% of nearly 56,000 CPOE
prescriptions contained errors (Hoffman & Podgurski, 2011).
The ONC also makes clear the activities expected: hospitals' adoption and implementation of CPOE
Data relating to the provision of aPTT and PT and INR tests were extracted for the period of August 1 through September 30 for each year from 2005 (which provided baseline data of results before the introduction of the CPOE
system) to 2008 (2.5 years after system introduction).
Reducing unnecessary testing a CPOE
system through implementation of a targeted CDS intervention.
 Nonstandard abbreviations: CPOE
, computerized provider order entry; iCa, ionized calcium; Mg, magnesium; NT-proBNP, N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide; CDS, clinical decision support; ARRA, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
In Europe, the CPOE
market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2014 to 2019.
Kazemi, Fors, Tofighi, Tessma and Ellenius (2010) found that when providers used CPOE
, 80% of medication errors were instantly detected and accurately corrected in the order entry phase before the order was transmitted to nursing.
Unfortunately, MCCG is in the minority when it comes to CPOE
However, research on the adoption of computerized physician order entry (CPOE
) and other EHR technologies has shown marginal and mixed benefits for medication management (e.g., Appari et al.
We removed the test from the CPOE
order menu, thereby eliminating the possibility that a cycloserine level test would be ordered in error when a clinician desired a cyclosporine level, leading to a delay in obtaining the necessary result.
Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE
) has been available to most hospitals for the past decade, where it has been touted as being able to help ensure medication safety and enhance quality by improving enterprise-level efficiency.
One triad of technologies: computerized physician order entry (CPOE
), bar-coded medication administration (BCMA) and "smart IV pumps" will result in safer medication administration.
