EHR Objective 3: Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE)
CPOE means that an order is entered by a licensed provider. To count as CPOE in Open Dental, a provider must be logged on.
Measure 1: More than 60% of medication orders created by EP during reporting period are recorded using CPOE.
Measure 2: More than 30% of medical laboratory orders created by EP during reporting period are recorded using CPOE. Medical lab orders are usually for blood work.
Measure 3: More than 30% of radiology orders (x-rays) created by EP during reporting period are recorded using CPOE.
Note: In version 15.4 and greater, there is a new and simplified method of creating and approving CPOE radiology orders. All x-ray procedures are automatically counted as radiology orders, and procedures added or approved by an EHR provider count as CPOE.
Yes. Providers qualify for an exclusion for a measure if they order less than 100 of the order type during the reporting period.
