Funny. Many JCI accredited hospitals like Severence and Bumrungrad have fully integrated CPOE systems yet US hospitals generally don't putting patients at greater risk.

I would like to see physician's better educated on treatment of blood clots to prevent them from becoming fatal. I had a terrible experience With 3 blood clots, DVT and a PE because of a physician being stubborn and not taking action soon enough when two other physician's had consulted with him on this and he still would not listen.

i would like to think that my doctor is good enough he wouldn't overlook just an important aspect of my care.
