Evaluating clinical decision support systems: monitoring CPOE order check override rates in the Department of Veterans Affairs' computerized patient record system.
Approach to Improving Safety
- Computerized Adverse Event Detection
- Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE)
- Computerized Decision Support
Setting of Care
This study discovered that override rates of potentially critical adverse drug events remain problematic despite a clinical decision support system designed to prevent them. Investigators call for greater qualitative research to understand the interactions between these systems and the clinical providers who use them.
