    notes, doctors progress notes and
    emergency notes are not on line
  • Practically all the doctors know how to sign

Examples of CPOE in FHA
ER Physicians at RCH/ERH asked for Order Entry
Training so we already had user buy-in from the
group. Most interesting training class we have
ever had. They felt it would save time and help
get patients through quicker, especially in ACR
area where Nursing support is limited. Usersame
Order Entry system as the Nursing staff not the
specified POE module connected to the EHR. Most
Orders entered by ER physicians are for
Laboratory and Medical Imaging (mostly xray)
requests. Testimonials from ER Physicians at
RCH/ERH Some EP's use is all the time. Others
seldom use it. It is excellent when the nurses
are really busy and then we can speed up the
order entry process. I find it helpful because
it saves time, but only on simple things. I like
it that it's OPTIONAL for me, not something I
HAVE to do when I don't have time.
CPOE Benefits (Meditech)
  • Supports Error Reducing Initiatives
  • Reduces transcription errors as orders are filed
    directly into the HCIS or PMS
  • Default values can be pre-defined
  • Standards can be defined via order sets
  • Order rule checking
  • Duplicate Order checking

CPOE Benefits (Contd)
  • Integration with FHA
  • Patient data is automatically shared
  • Orders can be placed from any PC in no chart
  • Orders are automatically transmitted to
    appropriate applications and departments or PMS

CPOE Benefits (Contd)
  • Streamlined Ordering Features
  • Use of the mouse for point and click data
  • Enter single tests, diagnostics, medications
  • Enter pre-defined sets of orders
  • Default values available for ease of ordering

CPOE Benefits (Contd)
  • Medication Interaction and Conflict Checking
  • Allergy
  • Duplicate Drug
  • Drug Interactions
  • IV incompatibilities
  • Food Interaction Warnings
  • Disease Contraindications

CPOE Hurdles
  • Most Physicians clinicians are concerned about
    the extra time required for online ordering.
  • Doesnt support the golden seconds for
  • Lack of convenient access to input devices.
  • Non-doctor friendly systems
  • Current incentive systems does not encourage CPOE.

Suggestions for CPOE Adoption
  • Provide access to administrative clinical
    information front office functions (scheduling)
    that the physician sees value in.
  • Develop a reward system for adopting CPOE.
  • POE must be integrated with CPR/EHR.
  • Support modalities for CPOE more suited for the
    Physician (PDAs et al).
  • Tie CPOE into referral patterns.
  • Link CPOE with best practice resources online.
