In order to address any deficiencies in each of these areas and in preparation for our next Joint Commission audit in a year’s time, each of these focus areas will be discussed in an individual brief and a corrective action plan will be implemented for each deficiency. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, adverse drug events account for over 770, 000 patient injuries or deaths each year. ADEs account for an increase of 8-12 hospital days per patient at a cost increase of $16, 000 to $24, 000 over other admissions/ diagnoses. This leads to an average national cost to hospitals of between 1.56- 5.96 billion per year. Furthermore, as much as 30% of adverse drug reactions are due to preventable medication errors such as missed dose, wrong technique, duplicate dosing, and preparation errors.

Abstract: The Computerized Provider Order Entry at Emory Healthcare case presents one hospital system's efforts to implement computerized provider order entry (CPOE) across all of its hospitals and the challenges they faced in doing so. Issues such as standardization of care, how to handle medication reconciliation, and unexpected challenges (e.g., changes to the post-op ordering process, lack of a human gatekeeper to monitor order flow, increase in lab orders). Dr. Bill Bornstein, Chief Quality and Medical Officer of Emory Healthcare in Atlanta is responsible for the smooth implementation of CPOE at Emory Healthcare, which is a vital part of their $50 million electronic medical record initiative. By June 2009, CPOE had gone "live" at Emory University Orthopaedics and Spine Hospital, Emory University Hospital, and Wesley Woods Hospital in a staged rollout. While Dr. Bornstein felt good about how the implementation had gone thus far, as he looked ahead next month to July 13, 2009, the fast approaching go-live date for Emory University Hospital Midtown (EUHM), he was concerned about the challenges and possible perils that lay ahead.

Ideally, a good care system for patients includes medical professionals as well as friends and family to compliment each other in providing for patient needs. Because patients require care from medical professions in hospitals, there are provisions that the hospital must follow. “Compliance means conforming to a rule, such as a specification, policy, standard or law. Regulatory compliance describes the goal that corporations or public agencies aspire to in their efforts to ensure that personnel are aware of and take steps to comply with relevant laws and regulations (Compliance and Regulatory Compliance, 2013)”. For this reason there are terms of compliance that hospitals must adhere to.
