11 states where hospitals use CPOE systems most effectively

A recent report from The Leapfrog Group and Castlight Health shows nearly all reporting hospitals had a computerized physician order entry system in place, but not all systems are being used to their fullest potential.

Nationwide, only 64 percent of the hospitals fully met Leapfrog's CPOE standard, meaning the system alerts physicians to at least half of the most common, serious prescribing errors, and at least 75 percent of the hospital's medication orders were placed through a CPOE system.

In the following 11 states, listed alphabetically, between 75 and 100 percent of the reporting hospitals met Leapfrog's CPOE standard.

  • Connecticut
  • Georgia
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • Mississippi
  • New Mexico
  • New York
  • Oregon
  • Virginia
