A heuristic usability evaluation of a computerized provider order entry ( CPOE ) technology

  title={A heuristic usability evaluation of a computerized provider order entry ( CPOE ) technology},
  author={Qingyi Li and S. Douglasa and A. S. Hundta and Pascale Carayona},
Several studies have identified usability problems with CPOE. We performed a heuristic evaluation of a CPOE technology implemented in an academic hospital. User interface design features of this CPOE technology were evaluated against a variety of widely accepted usability heuristics and user interface design guidelines. The severity of the problems and redesign priority for each problem were also evaluated. In addition, we shared and discussed our redesign recommendations with the CPOE…

Usability evaluation of order sets in a computerised provider order entry system
A heuristic evaluation of a CPOE order set system was conducted to uncover existing usability issues prior to implementation and a user centred design prototype was created to demonstrate changes that could improve usability.
Evaluating the Efficiency, Usability and Safety of Computerized Order Sets in Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre's Computerized Provider Order Entry System
This thesis explores the evaluation of the Sunnybrook CPOE order set system with a heuristic evaluation, the development of a more user friendly CPOe order set interface (Test Design), and a usability study comparing three order set formats (Sunnybrook C POE, Test Design, and paper order sets).
A pilot study on usability analysis of emergency department information system by nurses.
This study investigated the usability gaps in the Emergency Department Information System (EDIS) as ten nurses differentiated by two experience levels, namely six expert nurses and four novice nurses, completed two lists of nine scenario-based tasks.

This book results from a decade of presenting the user-centered design (UCD) methodology for hundreds of companies (p. xxiii) and appears to be the book complement to the professional development
Usability Testing
Usability testing is a means for measuring how well people can use some human-made object for its intended purpose, i.e. the usability of the object.
Heuristic evaluation
This chapter discusses heuristic evaluation, which Inspection of a prototype or finished system to identify all changes necessary to optimize human performance and preference.
Medication errors: a prospective cohort study of hand-written and computerised physician order entry in the intensive care unit
Introduction of CPOE was associated with a reduction in the proportion of MEs and an improvement in the overall patient outcome score (if intercepted errors were included).
