National hospital quality reports aim to provide benchmarks on safety and other quality measures, though questions remain regarding their universal applicability to gauge improvement. This analysis of the 2014 Leapfrog Hospital Survey results found that while the majority of hospitals employed computerized provider order entry (CPOE), not all systems provided appropriate warnings to prevent potentially harmful orders, suggesting CPOE systems still need improvement to augment safety.
