Alternative CPOE Solution Earns Plaudits
For the Record Magazine
Not all computerized physician order entry (CPOE) systems are alike. That’s why Utah-based KLAS Research contacted PatientKeeper in early 2013 to take part in its “Tip of the Spear” report, a series that evaluates groundbreaking technology. One of the newest CPOEs on the market, PatientKeeper works with various EMR systems and features a simple user interface that allows physicians to quickly submit medical orders electronically.
As part of the study, KLAS spoke with clinical and IT personnel from six different organizations that represent more than 35 hospitals using PatientKeeper CPOE. Based on extensive interviews, KLAS found several common themes among users, particularly around system usability, key features and functions, training time, and overall satisfaction.
