Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE)
Electronic systems in which physicians enter and transmit medication orders as well as orders for radiology, lab work, and other ancillary services. Physician order entry systems help catch and prevent errors by checking physician orders against potential drug to drug interactions, normal dosages, and diagnostic or therapeutic guidelines. Physician order entry systems also prevent medical errors due to misreading of hand-written orders.
