Fifth Annual Healthcare IT Trends Survey Cites Resistance To Workflow As Leading Obstacle to CPOE Adoption


Single Sign-on, Virtual Desktops and Remote Access Identified as Top Three Enablers for Engaging Physicians to Adopt CPOE

Imprivata, the leader in secure access and collaboration for healthcare, today announced the results of its fifth annual survey examining IT trends in healthcare. According to this year's findings, 45 percent of respondents indicate that more than half of their physicians are placing orders using Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE).  Yet, 38 percent report that still less than 25 percent of their physicians are using CPOE, which poses a challenge for meeting Stage 2 Meaningful Use.  Sixty-three percent of respondents reported Resistance to Workflow Changes as the leading obstacle to CPOE adoption, with Single Sign-on (SSO) (74%), Virtualized Desktops (48%) and Remote/Mobile Access (46%) reported as the top three technologies for engaging physicians to use CPOE.
