Estimated Enrollment: 80
Study Start Date: September 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Observation
Those who will use the new CPOE system
Behavioral: satisfaction questionnaire
Satisfaction questionnaire
Other Name: questionnaire

Detailed Description:
To err is human. Most errors are caused by problems in the system. Punishing health personnel cannot prevent the same mistakes. The only solution is a good medication system. CPOE system can prevent prescribing errors. The CPOE system is always the major step in some studies concerning reducing prescribing errors, dispensing errors or administering errors. In this user-friendly and convenient era, improvement in the CPOE system is an immediate need.
