‘CPOE: The way Forward’ – paper
presented at IIT Kharagpur, India
CPOE is seen by most renowned organizations worldwide
as the answer to reducing medical errors by bringing
in a major breakthrough in the area of patient safety.
Decentralized and fragmented nature of healthcare delivery system
has been the oft-cited problem that has contributed to medical errors.
When patients see multiple providers in different settings, none of whom have access to complete information,
it becomes easier for things to go wrong. Fully integrated Hospital IT infrastructure,
EMR, and computer based data capture and data storage are pre-requisites for institutionalizing CPOE standards.

‘mHealth Can reduce the disease burden of Schools, Corporates and Public Health Agencies’
Healthcare has to leap frog the way India has done in telecom. Today India is the most economical and very technologicaly advanced in the telecom sector. The telecom industry did a few things right:
Instant gratification, Low entry and exit barriers, Level playing field in a regulated environment.
In my opinion, mHealth means connecting all the healthcare stakeholders using a mobile platform. This is best applied to chronic disease management and that too in a captive community like schools, large corporations etc.
In this paper I have taken the example of a school to hi-light the use of mHealth and EHR for Chronic disease management. The same can be applied to employee base of corporations.
