Computerized Provider Order Entry

An EP, through a combination of meeting the thresholds and exclusions (or both), must satisfy all three measures for this objective.

Measure 1: More than 60 percent of medication orders created by the EP during the EHR reporting period are recorded using computerized provider order entry.

Measure 2: More than 30 percent of laboratory orders created by the EP during the EHR reporting period are recorded using computerized provider order entry.

Measure 3: More than 30 percent of radiology orders created by the EP during the EHR reporting period are recorded using computerized provider order entry.

 

Exclusions:

Measure 1 Exclusion: Any EP who writes fewer than 100 medication orders during the EHR reporting period.

Measure 2 Exclusion: Any EP who writes fewer than 100 laboratory orders during the EHR reporting period.

Measure 3 Exclusion: Any EP who writes fewer than 100 radiology orders during the EHR reporting period.

 

Alternate Measure 1: For Stage 1 providers in 2015, more than 30 percent of all unique patients with at least one medication in their medication list seen by the EP during the EHR reporting period have at least one medication order entered using CPOE; or more than 30 percent of medication orders created by the EP during the EHR reporting period are recorded using computerized provider order entry.

 

Alternate Exclusion for Measure 2: Providers scheduled to be in Stage 1 in 2015 may claim an exclusion for measure 2 (laboratory orders) of the Stage 2 CPOE objective for an EHR reporting period in 2015.

 

Alternate Exclusion for Measure 3: Providers scheduled to be in Stage 1 in 2015 may claim an exclusion for measure 3 (radiology orders) of the Stage 2 CPOE objective for an EHR reporting period in 2015.
