E-prescribing and Physician Order Entry are highly recommended to overcome medical errors like prescription errors like paper charting errors comprising illegible handwriting and incomplete orders frequently encountered in hospitals. E-prescribing helps physicians in transmitting electronic prescriptions to community pharmacies, reduce paper use and error prone faxed prescriptions.

Implementation Plan format PICOT question: For adult inpatients, would the use of an Electronic Health Record, computerized physician order entry as compared to solely paper documentation result in a medication error rate reduction similar to that found in the literature? The proposed solution is a combination of manual and Electronic health record systems. Although humans tend to commit mistakes but are creative and resourceful to correct both their own and machine errors. E-prescribing and Physician Order Entry are highly recommended to overcome medical errors like prescription errors like paper charting errors comprising illegible handwriting and incomplete orders frequently encountered in hospitals. E-prescribing helps physicians in transmitting electronic prescriptions to community pharmacies, reduce paper use and error prone faxed prescriptions. Previous studies indicate improvement in medical error prevention frequency and clinical efficiency through E-prescription systems (Weingart et al, 2009).

The results are accurate, logically coherent and match current state of hospitals (Cheragi et al., 2013). Absence of medication error reporting worsens patient’s condition due to fear of high administrative expenses (Cohen, 2007). Computerized physician order entry is another electronic order and prescription service for increasing doctor’s quickness, expanding abbreviations plus legibility of physician’s hand writing. Order entry errors increase Adverse Drug Events (ADEs) risk leading to extended hospital stay, heightened medical costs, disability including death. CPOE leads to legible medication orders and dosing and on-screen drug to drug interaction alerts. Handoff interventions can reduce communication errors, preventable/non-preventable ADE’s…
