Attitudes and perceptions of pediatric residents on transitioning to CPOE
Creating Attitudes and perceptions of pediatric residents on transitioning to CPOE
This article focuses on the implementation of Computer Provider Order Entry, (CPOE), being used by new resident physicians. A study was done over a period of 6 months and 12 months to see how their attitudes differed.
During this study, resident physicians were able to use the CPOE instead of the old handwritten orders. Prior to using the CPOE, they had pre-conceptions of how the system could benefit them. After using the CPOE for 6 months, they were asked to give their opinions about the system and the same thing after using the system for 12 months.
The results of this study are as follows. After the 6 month period, only 48% said they favored the CPOE, while 42% did not care for the CPOE. After the 12 month period was up, 80% of the residents favored the CPOE. The other percentage would rather revert back to paper ordering. The resident physicians had many different views about the improvement of patient care using the CPOE. Some stated that there was litte to no improvement while others said there was some improved aspects.
In conclusion, the residents had a preference for the CPOE over the traditional paper ordering. The majority of them did find that the CPOE helped patient improvement.
