The article presents the author's views on computerized prescriber order entry (CPOE) and clinical decision support (CDS). The author mentions that the goal of CPOE and CDS is to standardize data, make it more accessible, automate slow tasks which would help the physicians and health caregivers spend more time in patient care. The author further mentions that in spite of being beneficial the adoption of electronic health records (EHR) and CPOE by the pharmacists in the U.S. is very slow.
