Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE) is a system that supports provider electronic entry of orders, such as medications, diagnostic tests, and procedures within an EHR/EMR system. The use of CPOE typically can reduce errors caused by poor handwriting, and can help improve care coordination among providers. It can usually be integrated with other tools, like clinical decision support systems to facilitate evidence based care. The following activity and assessment resources are for clinical students to explore how this will impact their practice.
