Physician Order Entry

On Medscape:  Computerized Physician Order Entry: Has the Time Come?  … it's a so-so article on a complex topic, written by … me. 

No kidding.  I think the article is OK .. but not great.  CPOE is a tough topic to cover in a thumbnail, and while I think I provide a reasonable overview to anyone who's never heard of CPOE .. the author doesn't focus enough on the potential bumps in the road of CPOE implementation.    It's VERY important to listen to the physicians as an implementation is planned.  Meeting their needs is the key to a successful implementation.
