Part of the JONES AND BARTLETT SERIES IN BIOMEDICAL INFORMATICS As the number of healthcare organizations beginning to implement clinical information systems grows, the number of unanticipated and unintentional consequences inevitably increases as well. While existing research suggests that much good can come from clinicians entering orders directly, errors or other unintended consequences related to technology may arise. Ideal for both clinicians and information technology professionals, Clinical Information Systems: Overcoming Adverse Consequences helps fledgling organizations better prepare for the inevitable challenges and obstacles they will face upon the implementation of such systems. Based on the research and findings from the Provider Order Entry Team from the Oregon Health a Science University, this book discusses the nine categories of unintended adverse consequences that occurred at many of the leading medical centers during their implementation and maintenance of a state-of-the-art clinical information system. It goes on to present the best practices they identified to help organizations overcome these obstacles.Washington, DC: Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology; 2000:1a€“17. ...
