The need for a pediatric Clinical Decision Support tool is highlighted


An interesting study regarding the implementation of a pediatric CPOE (Computerised Physician Order Entry) shows: "The vulnerability analysis highlighted the need to configure a Clinical Decision Support system that can identify inappropriate dosing instructions for pediatric patients." The results of the study clearly point out that the implementation of a CPOE without a Clinical Decision Support tool for pediatric dosages does not improve the number of 'inappropriate orders'.
