HIMSS launches CPOE Wiki
The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) has released a new computer physician order entry (CPOE) wiki to bring data, documents and valuable guidelines on meeting and exceeding meaningful use into one location.

Designed as an interactive discussion forum, the HIMSS CPOE Wiki connects users as they introduce a new or participate in an ongoing conversation on CPOE, the Chicago-based organization stated. Users can find and compare content, share best practices and templates and review lessons learned on CPOE implementation, added the organization.

The HIMSS Enterprise CPOE Workgroup developed the wiki and organized the tool by various stages of implementation: initiating, planning, executing, monitoring/controlling, transitioning to operations and optimization/maintenance. Other wiki topics include:
  • Success stories;
  • Federal policy information; and
  • CPOE adoption statistics.
