Abstract

An estimated 522,000 serious medication errors can be eliminated in the United States each year through the use of computerized provider order entry. However, the implementation of computerized provider order entry is being slowed down by resistance from clinicians, particularly physicians. Nurses understand the work of physicians and are in a unique position to help overcome their resistance and smoothen the transition to computerized provider order entry. The authors outline the strategies for nurses to increase organizational acceptance during the process of computerized provider order entry implementation.
