 Computerized Provider Order Entry
Ordering errors caused by illegible handwriting, communication issues, or allergy or drug interactions require proactive alerts from the system. The journey from paper-based ordering to digital ordering is key to elevating quality of care and patient safety, according to GE Healthcare Information Technologies (Menomonee Falls, Wis).

Centricity® CPOE electronically accepts physicians’ orders for diagnostic and treatment services. Centricity CPOE facilitates the availability of real-time, relevant patient information at the time of ordering and applies rules-based decision logic to optimize the order process. The ideal ordering process should be quick and easy to use, and provide access to accurate and reliable patient data through an intelligent and responsive system to help elevate patient safety and consistency of care. GE developed Centricity CPOE with this in mind.
