Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE)


Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE)

Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE)is a feature within Hospital Information System (HIS) that enables physicians to electronically order medications, laboratory tests, diagnostic imaging, and other clinical services for patients. CPOE has several benefits, including reduced costs. Costs associated with paper-based ordering systems, such as printing and storage of paper forms, can be cut back.

When documents are digitized, printing and paper costs are lower because hard copies of documents are no longer needed. Instead, documents can be shared electronically, and employees can access them on their computers, tablets, or smartphones.

When physical forms are used, the need of storage space keeps growing, to the point that the health facility needs to build or rent a new storage room. With CPOE, forms are stored digitally, reducing the need to maintain physical storage, which can eventually reduce costs significantly.

Ksatria Medical Systems (KMS) is a comprehensive HIS that incorporates various modules to streamline hospital operations, including patient registration, billing, pharmacy management, and electronic medical records. One of the significant benefits of KMS is its Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) feature that is embedded with its clinical modules.

The CPOE module in KMS provides physicians with an intuitive and user-friendly interface to prescribe medications, request laboratory tests, radiology imaging or other diagnostic support examinations, and refer the patients to other services. The prescribing process is integrated with the inventory module, showing only medicines that are available in the warehouses and their remaining quantities. Diagnostic support examination groups and items can also be configured depending on what the health facility provides.

KMS’ CPOE system enhances efficiency by streamlining the ordering process, reducing the time it takes for patients to receive necessary treatments. Electronic orders and the results can be processed and transferred quickly and efficiently, enabling physicians access and update patient records in real-time, leading to faster decision-making and more coordinated care. The CPOE feature in KMS also improves communication among healthcare professionals by making it easier to share information about patient care. Electronic orders and patient records can be accessed and updated by multiple staff, ensuring everyone involved in a patient’s care has access to the same information. This leads to better-coordinated care and ultimately improves patient outcomes.

In conclusion, KMS’s CPOE system is an integral component of the hospital information system. It offers a comprehensive solution for physicians to manage patient orders and care, leading to improved patient safety, enhanced efficiency, and increased communication. With the CPOE feature in KMS, healthcare professionals can provide better care and achieve better patient outcomes.
