Leapfrog CEO on CPOE

Last week, Leah Binder, the CEO of the Leapfrog Group, was a guest blogger for the Health Affairs blog.  She wrote about her recent experience touring a hospital that had adopted computerized physician order entry (CPOE).  Since Leapfrog had included the adoption of CPOE as one of the first standards on their hospital survey, Binder was thrilled to hear that the hospital's recently adopted CPOE system had already reduced errors, saved time and more importantly, saved lives.

In her post, Binder discusses the "pain" of adopting CPOE and suggests next steps.  Read her post here.


INQRI is very interested in the work of The Leapfrog Group.  Our grantee team at the Medical University of South Carolina studied and assessed a hospital patient safety reporting initiative implemented by Leapfrog as part of their project, "Linking Processes of Nursing Care and Patient Safety Outcomes: An Analysis of the Cause and Effect of Safe Practice."  Click here to watch a video series of Dr. Lindrooth presenting their study findings.
