What is Computerized Provider Order Entry?

  • The doctor logs in to the CPOE system if it’s standalone software or in the EHR platform if CPOE is only its module.
  • After successful authorization, the doctor starts creating and editing the order for drugs, laboratory tests, etc.
  • Then, the order is verified using the data stored in the clinical decision support system, electronic health record software (the medical history), and of course, in the practice management system (the health plan).
  • When verification is completed, the order is transmitted to the service or medication provider (in-hospital pharmacy, laboratory, etc.).
  • In the end, the order is logged into a patient’s medical history stored in the EHR.
