Transforming Healthcare by ProQuest


Denver Health and Hospital Authority (Denver Health) ranks in the top 5% of US Hospitals in terms of size and provides care for more than 160,000 individual patients -- one out of every four people in Denver. After implementing significant system updates, their IT department recognized that to reach the next level, and add measurable return on investment (ROI), they needed to deliver an integrated approach to clinical and non-clinical patient care. For this work, Denver Health collaborated with Siemens Medical Solutions to initiate their plans. The Denver Health/Siemens team identified computerized physician order entry (CPOE) as a key project that would have a direct and positive impact on ROI. One major hindrance to CPOE adoption by physicians is their perception that CPOE equals cookie-cutter medicine. The new model proved extremely successful. They began to see improved workflow, more fluid physician communication and faster results.
