Albany Memorial Hospital to expand CPOE

The Hannaford Charitable Foundation is donating $25,000 to Northeast Health to aid in the expansion of the Computer Physician Order Entry system at Albany Memorial Hospital.

CPOE systems are designed to reduce hospital errors by creating an integrated, uniform electronic method of managing patient data and medical history. Information on treatment history, medications, tests and diagnostic images can be input by physicians and made accessible to Northeast Health doctors at any of the Troy, N.Y., health care network's many locations.
