2016 HIMSS Davies Award winner North York General Hospital engaged its clinicians in a carefully managed process to create a library of over 350 electronic order sets, during which evidence was carefully integrated into all clinical content and workflows. The result was broad and deep adoption, evidenced by a dramatic increase in order set use, and a corresponding significant decrease in the probability of inpatient death from pneumonia or exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Explain how engagement of clinicians in designing and maintaining clinical content for CPOE systems is crucial for system adoption and culture change
Illustrate why CPOE system and clinical content design requires integration of evidence into daily clinician workflow to achieve improvements in quality and safety of patient care
Enumerate the patient care benefits that can result when the goals of clinician adoption, evidence integration, culture change, and system stewardship are achieved together
Outline the success factors required for meaningful improvements in quality and safety of patient care when designing, implementing and maintaining clinical content for CPOE systems
