Electronic Ordering with Imaging Decision Support Well Accepted

A study that looked at 4.1 million imaging studies performed at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston between 2000 and 2010 indicates that fears that clinicians may reject electronic ordering of imaging studies with built-in computerized decision support may be unfounded.
The study, which appears in the February issue of the Journal of the American College of Radiology, found that implementing a computerized physician order entry (CPOE) system with clinical decision support for radiology had many benefits for the organization and potentially patients as well.
Check out this article on NewsWire and the abstract of the paper.
