Description

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).

Learning Objectives: 

  • 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

Audience: 

C-Suite
Clinical Informaticists
Physician, CMO, CMIO
