This systematic review synthesizes the qualitative evidence about electronic prescribing. From 79 included studies, the study team identified a series of frontline implementation challenges such as perceived inefficiencies and lack of technical support. Benefits of electronic prescribing included improved quality, safety, documentation, and enhanced reputation. The authors conclude that computerized provider order entry catalyzes far-ranging organizational change and could benefit from preimplementation, proactive change management.
