Course Overview

CPOE is the process of entering and sending treatment instructions (medication, laboratory, and radiology orders) through computer applications rather than paper, fax, or telephone. It’s a valuable tool, one that’s virtually essential to the success of any Health IT program.

CareerStep’s Computerized Physician Online Entry course — designed for or eligible clinicians, consultants, and practice managers — provides a comprehensive overview of the process, including best practices, requirements, benefits, and limitations.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services have indicated that thorough knowledge of this process will be mandatory for all clinicians who participate in the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act and the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MACRO-MIPS).
