The Physician Order Entry Team at Oregon Health & Science University has, for the past 12 years, been, and continues to be, actively engaged in research on Computer Physician Order Entry (CPOE) and continues with Computerized Decision Support (CDS) inside and outside CPOE. We started accumulating a CPOE database in 2004. With our move to CPOE/CDS we saw the need for a more concentrated bibliography of CDS articles and began to develop a CDS bibliography.
Articles for this new CDS bibliography were identified by searching National Library of Medicine MEDLINE electronic bibliographic database, from January 1, 1994 to December 10, 2009 using search concepts (with appropriate synonyms): Decision Making, Computer Assisted; Decision Support Systems, Clinical; Medical Order Entry Systems; Medication Systems; Medication Systems, Hospital; Clinical Pharmacy Information Systems; Reminder Systems; Drug Therapy, Computer-assisted; Medical Records systems, computerized; Hospital Information Systems and Diagnosis, computer assisted. The Cochrane Collection and CINAHL were searched similarly. This strategy was supplemented by articles identified as key in the reference sections. In addition, bibliography users have suggested additions which are always welcome. This remains a work in progress as we fill it out and attempt to keep it up-to-date.
