|Abstract:||Abstract: Today, cancer is one of the most prevalent diseases. Cancer treatment regimens are complex, are associated with high risks and often have unwanted side effects. The outcomes of a longitudinal study to evaluate the impact of using an American computerized physician order entry (CPOE) system to improve cancer care outcomes in an Australian not-for-profit tertiary healthcare environment are presented. Results indicate that while the system is necessary it is not sufficient to provide superior care. Finally, lessons learned are presented. Learning Objective 1: Analyze key facilitators that assist in the implementation and adoption of COS (chemo therapy ordering system) Learning Objective 2: Determine primary barriers that can hinder the implementation of a COS (chemotherapy ordering system) Learning Objective 3: Develop understanding and identifying the activities that must be enabled to ensure the successful implementation of a COS (chemotherapy ordering system).|
