Siemens Medical Solutions is integrating its computerized physician order entry (CPOE) technology with CPOE pediatric order sets developed and used at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC).
Siemens said it purchased CCHMC's pediatric order sets, clinical pathways, care plans, and dose checking rules and references, and is using the content as the foundation for pediatric CPOE starter sets that will be used by other Siemens customers.
Siemens said it will offer CCHMC's pediatric order sets with both its Invision and Soarian CPOE offerings.
CCHMC is a 423-bed freestanding children's hospital with more than 700,000 patient visits annually. For its pioneering work in CPOE and clinical documentation solutions, Cincinnati Children's was honored with the 2003 Nicholas E. Davies EMR (electronic medical record) Recognition Program Award of Excellence sponsored by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), becoming the first children's hospital to win the award.
