Materials and Methods: This exploratory study was conducted for software designing and was practically performed between 2013 to 2015 in Namazi Teaching Hospital in Shiraz. The study population consisted of physicians, nurses, and information technology professionals in Shiraz University of Medical Sciences. The study included four phases; in the first three phases documentations review, Delphi, and focused group discussions methods for data collection and CPOE software was designed in the fourth stage.

Results: The CPOE software was designed in 13 months and had seven main including data entry, drug interactions management system, warning system, treatment services, ability of writing in the software, software reporting and technical capabilities. The most important features of this software were the possibility of physician-nurse relationship, software connection with the Hospital Information System (HIS) and use of Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS). The software was implemented in the general Intensive Care Unit (ICU) ward and used for physicians’ order registration for three months.

Conclusion: The CPOE was designed and implemented in Namazi Hospital. The comments of operators have to be considered for successful application of any software in hospital. The integration between CPOE and CDSS is recommended for improving the system performance.

Key words: Computerized physician order entry, Clinical decision support systems, Physician, Iran
