CPOE (Computerized Provider Order Entry)

Definition: A computer application that allows a physician's orders for diagnostic and treatment services (such as medications, laboratory, and other tests) to be entered electronically instead of being recorded on order sheets or prescription pads.

The computer compares the order against standards for dosing, checks for allergies or interactions with other medications, and warns the physician about potential problems.
