Prescribing/Ordering: Computerized Order Entry and Decision Support
Part of the
book series (HI)
Institutional adoption of computerized provider order entry (CPOE) and clinical decision support (CDS) has been advocated by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and others to reduce and prevent medication prescribing errors as part of a global approach to safety (Table 26.1)1 that includes: fostering an open, nonpunitive, and goal-directed culture and environment for learning and teaching safety improvement, understanding, and anticipating human behaviors and limitations, training and working as a team, and creating robust systems for anticipating and handling the unexpected.
