Computerized Prescriber Order Entry (CPOE) System Evaluation

To ensure CPOE systems with clinical decision support are performing well and as expected, it is important for healthcare organizations to regularly test these systems. The accompanying list of unsafe orders was compiled after an analysis of Serious Events associated with prescribing errors that were reported to the Pennsylvania Patient Authority.

Specific instructions for use are included in the tool, which may be downloaded for electronic entry or printed for handwritten entry. The checklist is a PDF and requires Adobe Reader to view and/or use the electronic entry feature.
