Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, a 474-bed health system based in Georgia, has implemented CPOE and electronic documentation as part of its roll-out of the EMR from Epic System (Verona, Wis.).

The CPOE tools will allow physicians, nurses and other clinicians to directly enter medication, respiratory and nursing orders themselves. Pharmacists in the system will be able to see the child’s weight, medical condition, drug allergies and other prescriptions the child is taking, according to the company.

Each software application is designed to share a single storage area combining patient charts, physician orders, clinical notes, pharmacy information and other data, it says.

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
