Outline l.jpg

Outline

  • Definition and context

  • Advantages of CPOE

  • Disadvantages of CPOE

  • Outcome measures and examples

  • Same system other outcome


What is computerized physician order entry cpoe l.jpg

What is Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE)?

Ordering of tests, medications, and treatments for patient care using computers

Involves electronic communication of the orders

Often use rules-based methods for checking appropriateness of care


Cpoe ehr and dss l.jpg

CPOE, EHR and DSS

Documentation

DSS

Medication

EHR

Test reports (EKG, PFT)

Radiology, lab results

CPOE


Slide5 l.jpg

CPOE

  • Has a positive influence on patients’ outcome

  • Has a negative influence on patients’ outcome


Cpoe advantages l.jpg

CPOE Advantages

Automate ordering process

Reduces Order Errors

Standardized, legible complete orders

DSS/Alerts

Data collected on variances in practice


Case example l.jpg

Case Example

Metformin is prescribed to a patient with an elevated creatinine level.

A drug-lab interaction alert warns that use of this medication could result in an increased risk of fatal lactic acidosis.


Case example8 l.jpg

Case Example

A physician prescribes warfarin for a patient with chronic atrial fibrillation.

System:

vitamin K rich food likely to interfere with the efficacy of the drug.

Specific patient information


Example dss in cpoe medication prescription l.jpg

Example DSS in CPOE – medication prescription

  • Allergy

  • Age (check drug name and dose)

  • Duplicate drugs on active orders, not one-time

  • Severe drug interactions

    • Drug-drug, drug-food

  • Dose maximum

  • Drugs with opposite actions


Cpoe disadvantages l.jpg

CPOE Disadvantages

Errors still possible

Alerts

Multiple steps

Access


Pubmed indexed papers on cpoe l.jpg

PubMed indexed papers on CPOE


Slide12 l.jpg

CPOE

  • Has a positive influence on patients’ outcome

  • Has a negative influence on patients’ outcome

  • On which outcome measure?


Outcome measures l.jpg

Outcome measures

  • Adherence to guideline

  • Alerts - user response

  • Time

  • Safety

    • Medication errors

    • ADEs (mortality)

  • Cost and Efficiency

    • Medication costs

    • Pharmacists interventions

  • Satisfaction, usage and usability


Example cpoe improves adherence to guideline l.jpg

Example CPOE improves adherence to guideline

Teich JM et al. Arch Intern Med. 2000 Oct 9;160(18):2713-4.


Example cpoe reduce errors l.jpg

Example CPOE reduce errors

  • Potts studied ADE rates in 13,828 medication orders before/after CPOE implementation at Vanderbilt Children’s PICU:

Potts AL, Barr FE, et al. Pediatrics. 2004 Jan;113(1 Pt 1):59-63.


Slide17 l.jpg

Example CPOE introduces errors

  • Brigham and Womens' Hospital, Boston introduced a CPOE

  • After implementation, the rate of intercepted Adverse Drug Events (ADE) doubled!

  • Reason: The system allowed to easily order much too large dosages of potassium chloride without clear indicating that it be given in divided doses.

  • Bates et al The impact of computerized physician order entry on medication error prevention. JAMIA 1999, 6(4), 313-21.


Example cpoe introduces errors l.jpg

Example CPOE introduces errors

Association with increased PICU mortality:

2.8% 14 months before CPOE

6.4% 5 months after CPOE

Han YY, Carcillo JA, et al. Pediatrics. 2005 Dec;116(6):1506-12.


Example cpoe reduce costs l.jpg

Example CPOE reduce costs

Brigham and Women’s Experience: Cost-Effective

  • Cost:

    • $3.7 million implementation

    • $ 600,000 to $1.1 million operational costs

  • Results:

    • Decreased drug costs

    • ADE cost is approximately $4,700

  • Kausal R et al. J Am Med Inform Assoc. 2006; 13(3): 365-7


Cpoe and cost l.jpg

CPOE and cost

  • Huge variation in actual costs based on hospital size and complexity of system

    • Hardware and Software: $1-$5 million

    • Staff training

    • Ongoing maintenance

    • Total costs for large, fully integrated systems could be up to $60 million

  • Costs will decrease when DSS is geared to cost reduction


Usability problems l.jpg

Usability Problems

Potential selection errors

Similar medication names

Similar patient names

Overly trust default values

Influence workflow and communication

Physician resistance

Frequent data entry required

Must not require additional time

Most decision-support steps must be turned off to encourage use

“Not-invented-here” syndrome


Slide22 l.jpg

CPOE as a Sociotechnical intervention

  • Health information systems has to deal with the actors, the artefacts, and their interaction.

CPOE =socio-technical systems


Same system other outcome l.jpg

Same system other outcome

  • Upperman vs. Han

    • same hospital: Pittsburgh Childrens Hospital

    • other outcome measure: ADE vs mortality

  • Han vs. Del Beccaro

    • Same CPOE

    • Different hospitals

    • Same outcome measure (mortality)

Upperman et al. J Pediar Surg. 2005;40:57–59; Han et al. Pediatrics. 2005 Dec;116(6):1506-12; Del Beccaro. Pediatrics 2006;118;290-295.


Upperman et al l.jpg

Upperman et al

* p<0.05


Han et al l.jpg

Han et al

* p<0.05


Del becarro et al l.jpg

Del Becarro et al

  • Same results for:

  • transported patients

  • congenital cardiovascular disease patients


Upperman vs han l.jpg

Upperman vs Han

  • Surrogate outcome measures such as medication errors and ADEs are not sufficient

  • More studies on mortality are necessary


Han vs del beccaro l.jpg

Han vs. Del Beccaro

  • Methodological differences:

    • Han used unbalanced before after periods

    • Del Beccaro did not correct for case mix differences in before vs after period

    • Populations Han vs. Del Beccaro were not comparable


Han vs del beccaro29 l.jpg

Han vs. Del Beccaro

  • Pittsburgh implemented too fast without pilot and usability testing:

    • Order entry only allowed when patient physically entered hospital

    • All medication in central pharmacy

    • Pharmacy processed order only after complete activation by nurse

    • Go live without necessary order sets


Han vs del beccaro30 l.jpg

Han vs. Del Beccaro

  • Seattle hospital learned from Pittsburgh

  • Factors influencing successful implementation:

    • response time and user time

    • meeting information needs (e.g.using order sets)

    • multidimensional integration with workflow

    • Involvement leaders, support staff, clinicians

    • training

    • improvement through evaluation and learning


Will a cpoe improve quality of care l.jpg

Will a CPOE improve quality of care?

Yes if you implement it the right way!!


Successful cpoe implementation l.jpg

Successful CPOE implementation

  • Technical Infrastructure:

    • EHR

    • Drug information database

    • DSS

  • Sociotechnical implementation strategy

    • Usability pilots

    • Teams of informaticians, physicians, nurses, clerks, therapists

    • Strong leader and good project management

    • Training and support

  • R. Gardner: “implementation is 90% organizational and political and 10% technical”
