Starting Monday of this week, January 17, patients at Ozarks Community Hospital of Gravette (OCH) will benefit from computerized physician order entry (CPOE). The CPOE system reduces errors caused by handwriting or transcription, decreases delays in order completion and improves efficiency by offering entry at point-of-care. OCH’s first phase of EMR was implemented just before the New Year, which included a computerized order entry system for ancillary departments and electronic documentation for inpatient nursing and emergency departments.
