KLAS: CPOE Usage Almost Doubles

CPOE usage in hospitals with more than 200 beds has almost doubled, from 9.6 percent last year to 17.5 percent today, according to a report from Orem, Utah-based KLAS.

The jump represents significant progress since KLAS first began measuring CPOE adoption in 2003, when fewer than 3.5 percent of U.S. hospitals were participating in any form of the technology. At that time, nearly half of all pharmacy orders entered by physicians were reentered in the pharmacy, and only 45,000 physicians across the country used CPOE technology. Most of those providers using CPOE were in teaching hospitals.

The KLAS survey looks to answer such questions as: aside from continued growth, how is CPOE faring today? Is there a difference in deployment of CPOE in hospitals with 200 or fewer beds and those with more than 200 beds? Which vendors lead CPOE adoption, and how satisfied are their clients? Are physicians more accepting of the technology today than they have been in the past? What advice do providers offer from their experience with deployment and usage of CPOE?

Vendors covered in the report include Cerner, CPSI, Eclipsys, Epic, GE, McKesson, Meditech, QuadraMed and Siemens.
