High impact information on Medical Order Entry Systems

  • The actual proportion of patients who received discharge prescriptions between the pre-CPOE and CPOE periods did not change: beta-blockers (85% vs 84%), angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor for AMI (77% vs 76%), and for CHF (56% vs 61%) [1].
  • CPOE is far from KO'd. JAMA study only proves that no technology cures problems in isolation [2].
  • Our NNT data demonstrate that CPOE would prevent 1 ADE every 64 (95% CI 25-100) patient days [3].
  • METHODS: A simulation model was constructed using estimates of initial and ongoing CPOE costs mapped onto all general hospitals in Iowa by bed quantity and current clinical information system (CIS) status [4].
  • DESIGN: Prospective, controlled study of all 143 Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine students who began the Basic Medicine clerkship between March 2003 and April 2004 at one of three teaching hospitals: one using CPOE, one paper orders, and one that began using CPOE midway through this study [5].

Associations of Medical Order Entry Systems with chemical compounds

  • DESIGN: Alerts were implemented to notify of the potential risk from low electrolyte concentrations or unknown digoxin or electrolyte concentrations during CPOE [6].
  • Fermentation was carried out at an initial glucose concentration of 90 g/l. CPOE did not inhibit the growth of the fermentative organism [7].
  • Applying CPOE as the extraction solvent, about 47% of the total butanol produced was extracted, glucose consumption was increased to 83% and relatively high glucose consumption rates and solvent productivities were obtained [7].
  • After CPOE implementation, the percentage of cases during each period where caffeine was administered before 2 and 3 hours increased from 10 to 35% and 12 to 63%, respectively [8].
  • The possibility of employing methylated crude palm oil (CPOE) as an extraction solvent to reduce end-product inhibition and to enhance solvent productivity in acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentation was evaluated using oleyl alcohol as the standard butanol extractant [7].

Gene context of Medical Order Entry Systems

  • To HYPE is human. Practical IT approaches to patient safety should come before a leap into CPOE [9].
  • The belief in the promise of CPOE has led organizations such as the Leap Frog Group to advocate for the implementation of CPOE in hospitals to improve patient safety [10].
