Clinical order set library provides a path to transforming care

Health system officials discuss how using a clinical order set library and a computerized physician order entry (CPOE) system has resulted in improvements in the quality of care.

A new alliance among three health systems and clinical decision-support applications developer Zynx Health Inc. has led to a new clinical order set product for providers, but the organizations are enthusiastic about the tool's potential for improving quality. The Care Collaborative includes Ascension Health, Adventist Health System and Catholic Healthcare West, which have spent the last four years developing a clinical order set library that will facilitate the implementation of computerized physician order entry, or CPOE, systems.

The key to developing this wealth of clinical content has been sharing content across providers within the systems, according to Jeff Rose, a physician who is vice president of clinical excellence in informatics at Ascension Health. Once providers grew accustomed to learning from one another and sharing those lessons across the board, creating the evidence-based clinical order sets fell into place.

In this podcast, learn more from Rose and other representatives of the Care Collaborative about the clinical order set library and how the experts hope they help to transform care.
