Impact of ambulatory computerized physician order entry on clinicians' time.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

While Ambulatory Computerized Physician Order Entry (ACPOE) may improve health care quality, the impact on clinician time may impose a barrier to implementation. We performed a time-motion analysis to evaluate this potential impact. The results indicate that there is no significant impact on clinicians' time with patients. Further analyses will assess ACPOE's impact on clinic time between patient visits.
