Computerized physician order entry (CPOE) is an electric entry process for medical practitioner to give instructions for the treatment of their patients. It reduces errors related to handwriting and reduces order completion time. The order entry is transmitted over a network to various departments within the hospital, including pharmacy, laboratory, and radiology.
CPOE has various advantages such as elimination of illegible orders, provides alert warnings for allergy and adverse drug reaction at the point of ordering, and provides warnings in incidences of drug-drug, drug-food, drug-lab, and drug-diagnosis interactions.
