The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) hosted a Web conference Monday, August 29 from 12:30 – 2:00 p.m. ET to discuss safe use of electronic health record (EHR) systems, specifically, methods to evaluate the safety of computer provider order entry (CPOE) functionality. Presenters described updates to a CPOE evaluation tool that assesses safety-critical decision support alerts and discussed methods to identify ‘wrong-patient’ errors when ordering medications and tests.
The Web conference is free and CE/CME is available at no charge to eligible professionals.
At the conclusion of this Web conference, participants should be able to:
- Discuss the use of a CPOE evaluation tool to self-assess an inpatient EHR system for safety performance and planned refinements that aim to improve the tool.
- Describe the potential risk of providers placing orders in the wrong patient’s record when multiple patient records are open at once in an EHR system.
CME/CNE credits were approved for those who attended the live event of this Web conference only. If you have any questions about obtaining CME/CNE credit for this webinar, please send an email to DigitalHealthcareResearch@ahrq.hhs.gov.
