Adoption of CPOE in Community Hospitals: Leading Practices
April 10, 2007 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Erica Drazen, Vice President, Emerging Practices, FCG. In 2006, FCG studied how five community hospitals approached physician incentives, workflow, metrics, physician training, and management of clinical decision support with CPOE. To make sure the hospital’s experience was relevant to the challenges of community settings, sites had to have CPOE in use in more than 80 percent of the hospital units and for at least 75 percent of all orders for inpatients. Independent community physicians managed more than 50 percent of admissions. The sponsor of the study was the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative (MTC). The report, Computerized Physician Order Entry. Lessons Learned in Community Hospitals, is available on the SI Web site.
