Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A new state law in Massachusetts will require hospitals and community health centers to adopt CPOE systems by 2012, and EHRs by 2015. CIOs--particularly those at community hospitals--face many significant challenges in meeting the CPOE and EHR deadlines. According to a study by MassTech and the New England Health Care Institute, CPOE systems can offer a full return on investment in just over two years. There is a critical need for hospitals to invest in nursing documentation and wireless infrastructure and have a stable network in place.
