Computerized Physician Order Entry

Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE)

CPOE refers to the process of providers entering and sending treatment instructions – including medication, laboratory, and radiology orders – via a computer application rather than paper, fax, or telephone.


Non-licensed employees do not receive the same level of formal training as Registered Nurses (RNs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) or Certified Medical Assistants (CMAs).  If your providers delegate prescription, diagnostic tests and other clinical orders to a non-licensed member of your workforce, there can be an increased risk of an order entry error.  According to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, medication errors are among the most common medical errors, harming at least 1.5 million people each year.


Quality controls help elevate the care at your healthcare organization from adequate to excellent. When patients are referred to your facility, you can promote your quality assurance programs that put a premium on patient and worker safety and optimize the effectiveness of treatment.


Qualified workforce members typically complete this training within 8-12 weeks when 4-6 hours per week of study time is devoted to this course to earn a Certificate of Completion.
