There is a great deal of overlap between CPOE and EHR systems, as both are designed to improve patient care by increasing efficiency and reducing mistakes. At their core, though, these two technologies serve very different purposes. While CPOE systems are primarily focused on medication management and workflow automation, EHR systems are driven by the need to consolidate patient information into a single resource that can be accessed by all healthcare providers.
When it comes to healthcare, the phrase “prevention is better than cure” is especially relevant. Bycatch prevention and mitigation (CPOE) is a set of measures designed to reduce the catches of non-target species in fisheries. CPOE can have positive impacts on the health of both marine ecosystems and the people who depend on them. For example, bycatch can include species that are important for the survival of other species further up the food chain. When these animals are removed from the ecosystem, it can cause a decrease in biodiversity and an increase in the incidence of disease. In addition, bycatch can include species that are considered to be pests or invasive. These animals can carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans, domestic animals, and crops. Removing them from the ecosystem can help to prevent the spread of these diseases. Finally, bycatch can also include endangered or threatened species. By reducing the number of these animals that are caught, CPOE can help to ensure that these species do not become extinct. In short, CPOE is essential for maintaining the health of both marine ecosystems and the people who depend on them.
