5 Steps to Successful CPOE
Starting physicians with a modified CPOE tool can aid with adoption. For example, some organizations have PDFs of order sets available on their intranets. Physicians can log on, fill out the form, print it, sign it, and handed it to the unit secretary. Although the result is still a paper document, it gets them used to using a computer for the order process. When it's time to flip the switch to "real" CPOE, physicians will no longer have to print and sign the forms—they'll just click a button to submit. Because there's one less step in their process, physicians actually will perceive CPOE as an improvement in workflow—not a small feat.
