Computerized prescriber order entry systems may have limited impact on patient harm

"Prescribing errors are common in the hospital, but are usually caught and corrected before reaching the patient," said Bobb. "The bottom line is that hospitals that have invested in CPOE and support clinical pharmacists have a greater likelihood of preventing medication errors."

Northwestern Memorial Hospital is currently implementing an electronic medical record and CPOE. The study of errors within its own hospital has helped a great deal in the design of the system. As well, the baseline data collected in this study could be used for comparison once the system is fully implemented.
