TECHNOLOGY: New York Times CPOE article

Milt Freudenheim has an article in the New York Times about the trouble that hospitals are having with computerized patient care. Well worth a read, even though the numbers about the current low use of CPOE and relatively low planned use of CPOE are well known in the academic press and I’ve blogged about them before.

The important part of the Times article is the fact that the public is getting a wider understanding of the slow progress health care is making. But it is making progress (finally) and according to the Gartner numbers in the NY Times article larger hospitals show remarkable progress in the number who are implementing CPOE and planning to implement it.
