Streamlining the search for CPOE information and insight, the new CPOE Wiki from the Chicago-based Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) brings data, documents and valuable guidelines on meeting and exceeding meaningful use into one location. The HIMSS Enterprise CPOE Workgroup developed the wiki with the leadership of workgroup Chair Paul Kleeberg, MD, Clinical Director for Minnesota and North Dakota REC REACH.

Designed as an interactive discussion forum, the HIMSS CPOE Wiki connects users as they introduce a new or participate in a current conversation on CPOE. Users also can find/compare content, share best practices and templates and review lessons learned on CPOE implementation.

For easy navigation, the workgroup organized the wiki by various stages of implementation: Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring/Controlling, Transitioning to Operations, and Optimization/Maintenance. It is also organized by topics called “building blocks” that transcend stages of implementations. Other wiki topics include:

  • Success Stories
  • Federal Policy information
  • CPOE Adoption Statistics

Get the latest information on Health IT and attend other valuable sessions at this two-day Summit providing healthcare leaders with educational content, insightful debate and dialogue on the future of healthcare and technology.
