Computer-Based Physician Order Entry (CPOE)

Computer-based physician order entry (CPOE) refers to a physician’s direct input of orders (medication and nonmedication) into an acute care (inpatient) automation system. We use physician order entry to emphasize that the ordering clinician — not someone operating on her behalf — needs to interact with the system.
