What is an example of CPOE?

An example of CPOE in healthcare is a system where a physician can use a computer or a mobile device to enter medication orders and other treatment orders for a patient electronically, instead of writing them on paper. 

The system can be integrated with a patient's electronic health record (EHR), which allows for real-time access to patient information, such as medication allergies, drug interactions, and laboratory results. 

The CPOE system can provide decision support, such as suggesting alternative medications or dosages based on patient-specific factors, and can also send alerts and reminders to healthcare providers to ensure that orders are followed up and completed in a timely manner. 

Overall, CPOE can help to reduce medication errors, streamline communication among healthcare providers, and improve patient safety and quality of care.
