Abstract

Few studies have evaluated the impact of an ambulatory computerized physician order entry (CPOE) system on medication errors. We conducted a retrospective analysis of 10,172 prescriptions to evaluate the impact of a basic CPOE system on prescribing-related medication errors, and found a significant decrease in the occurrence of errors.
