Computerized physician order entry, a factor in medication errors: descriptive analysis of events in the intensive care unit safety reporting system.
Thompson DA, Duling L, Holzmueller CG, et al. J Clin Outcomes Manage. 2005;12:407-412.
In this AHRQ-funded study, the authors analyze a computerized provider order entry (CPOE) system implemented in 18 intensive care units. They determined that although CPOE may prompt a new set of errors when first introduced, hospital leaders should ensure support for training and response to user suggestions to realize CPOE's safety benefits.
