Strategies for Implementing CPOE…………………………
Strategies for Implementing CPOE Introduction
Synopsis:Health Matters is a newly formed health system comprising two community hospitals, Cooper Memorial and Ashley Valley. The health system used a single vendor solution for its health information systems. The challenge presented in this case is how to implement the CPOE module effectively.
The challenge is compounded by the fact that Health Matters does not currently have a CIO.
In addition, both the CEO and the chairperson of the clinical information committee were involved in failed CPOE implementations at other institutions. (Pages 617 through 619, Wager, Lee, and Glaser text)
