PCSAO and its member agencies are very concerned and disagree with the inclusion of screening decisions as part of CPOE 12. We agree that screening is a practice area that can be examined and improved; however, we believe this must be done outside of the CPOE 12 review process. Because CPOE reports are public documents, it is not appropriate to include items in this process that are not spelled out in ORC or OAC but rather leave the review solely to the discretion and judgment of the reviewers. Instead, work on screening could occur parallel to the CPOE review process and also include the advisory group mentioned below. This work could then inform the screening guidelines which have been under review and revision for the past several years.
