[To read the full text of this article free, including a description of the computerized provider order entry (CPOE) system used, click here.]

Objectives: Only half of consultants' [specialists’] medical recommendations are implemented.

We created a tool that lets referring providers review and implement electronic recommendations made by consultants, with the hypothesis that facilitation with our tool could improve implementation.

Measurements: The tool was piloted among geriatrics consultants and hospitalists [physicians who work in the hospital]. Pre-post evaluation was done with control (before pilot; N = 20) and intervention (after pilot; N = 20) patients.

Consultants wrote notes containing recommendations for all study patients, and entered electronic recommendations only for intervention patients. We analyzed all recommendations and surveyed hospitalists.

Results:
A total of 249 recommendations were made for intervention patients versus 192 for controls (p < 0.05). Of all recommendations about intervention patients, 78% were implemented, compared to 59% for controls (p = 0.01).

Of the intervention recommendations, 77% were entered electronically using our tool; of these, 86% were implemented.

All 24 survey respondents indicated that the system:

• Improved quality,

• Saved time,

• And should be expanded.

Conclusion: Consultant recommendations were implemented 30% more often when there was electronic facilitation of recommendations.
