Wooster Community Hospital Uses Imprivata Confirm ID for EPCS to Bolster Its CPOE Strategy
Wooster Community Hospital
“Prior to Confirm ID, non-narcotics could be sent electronically, but narcotics had to be prescribed on paper,” says Eric Gasser, director of information systems at Wooster. “Physicians didn’t like having these separate workflows, so we implemented EPCS to encourage electronic prescribing. Our hospital is a leader in assuring patient safety and in addressing the opioid epidemic, and this allows physicians to safely prescribe prescriptions in a way that’s more satisfying to them and our patients. In fact, it’s been so effective and well-received that electronic prescribing is now mandated in our hospital.”
