CPOE Digest 2009
Meaningful Use and Physician Adoption

March 23, 2009

The KLAS "CPOE Digest 2009: Meaningful Use and Physician Adoption" report comes at a critical time as financial incentives are being offered at the federal level to healthcare providers that engage physicians through "meaningful usage" of EMR tools.

The goal now becomes one of proving that an IT strategy has achieved adequate levels of physician utilization. So, which HIT vendors have a proven track record of physician adoption? How deeply do these solutions get physicians to use electronic tools? If an EMR selection decision were made today, which HIT vendors offer the greatest chance for successfully engaging physicians via meaningful EMR usage? What are the actual levels of physician EMR adoption in the industry today?

This report analyzes HIT vendor performance from the perspective of client CPOE adoption. One key question is which vendors have successfully helped their clients adopt CPOE, and how well do the solutions support deep usage (i.e., all physicians, all orders, closed loop). In addition to the information covered in past reports, this report takes a further look at other ordering environments, such as oncology, pediatrics, and the outpatient setting.

In order to paint a complete and accurate picture of adoption throughout the industry, KLAS attempted to interview every healthcare organization live on CPOE in North America with over 200 beds (as well as most with under 200 beds), which resulted in more than 360 interviews representing 623 hospitals.

Vendor offerings included in this report are Cerner, CPSI, Eclipsys, Epic, GE, McKesson, Meditech, QuadraMed and Siemens.
