Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
In modern pediatric health care, each patient is associated with a vast amount of data — from medications to allergies. It’s crucial to each patient’s safety that every provider has access to this data.
A lot of information about a child needs to be shared among these providers. We call it a handoff when one provider takes over for another, or a patient is moved from one unit to another. Traditionally in hospitals, that handoff is when mistakes have happened — sometimes deadly mistakes.
At Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, we’ve tackled patient safety head-on. We began by implementing the computerized provider order entry (CPOE) system in 2002. CPOE removed written orders from the medication ordering and delivery process, creating a unified medication record.
CPOE was accompanied by other patient safety initiatives — and Children’s Hospital’s already admirable patient safety record made unprecedented improvements.
