SAFER-7 Computerized Provider Order Entry with Decision Support

A Resource Developed by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology

The Computerized Provider Order Entry with Decision Support SAFER Guide identifies recommended safety practices associated with Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE) and Clinical Decision Support (CDS). Completing this self-assessment in collaboration with a multi-disciplinary team will help an organization optimize the safety and safe use of CPOE with CDS in the EHR.

The implementation and use of CPOE with CDS is complex and fragile, requiring careful planning, implementation, and maintenance to function properly. In the EHR-enabled healthcare environment, providers rely on technology to support and manage the complex processes related to CPOE with decision support, and this reliance creates potential safety risks that can be minimized by the adoption of the recommended practices in this guide.
