The incorporation of computerized physician order entry (CPOE) in U.S. hospitals has accelerated significantly since the passage of ARRA in 2009. "CPOE 2011: The ARRA Effect" is the latest report, from the Orem, Utah-based KLAS, to offer insights for hospital administrators as they respond to increasing pressure to meet the first meaningful use (MU) deadlines.

The 2011 CPOE study features data collected from virtually every hospital in the U.S. known to have gone live with CPOE in 2009-2010. As the number of live CPOE sites increases, along with the speed and depth of adoption, vendors and their customers are being tested. This KLAS report answers the question of who is rising to the challenge.

Cerner and Epic hospitals are currently leading the pack. Cerner's Millennium PowerChart has more hospitals live with CPOE than any other vendor in the study and has helped their customers achieve deeper levels of adoption. In fact, an average of 81 percent of orders are being entered via CPOE in the Cerner hospitals that have gone live since 2009. Epic, with EpicCare Inpatient, ranked second in total live sites and had an average of 83 percent of orders being entered with CPOE. Both Cerner and Epic have approximately doubled their number of live CPOE sites since 2009.
