I am doing pharmacy informatics rotation and got involved in the implementation of CPOE using Simens Sorian and Zynx. I was a programmer with a BS in computer science and would like to know the opportunity of becoming a IT/IS pharmacist at hospital pharmacy. My hospital does have IT pharmacist, but most of other hospitals around my area do not have such position but IT people work with pharmacist. So, I am wondering if majority hospitals have such position or not. I see a lot of opportunities in consulting company if I get to know more of CPOE implementation process, but just don't want to travel around. Also, what application does your hospital use for CPOE? Giving current pharmacy students an idea how I got such rotation.... My school has no pharmacy informatics rotation, but as I was doing institution rotation, I saw them working on CPOE implementation and it was very interesting for me. So, I asked my preceptor if I can be involved in CPOE project and she allowed me to do. So, pharmacy informatics is my elective and I am hoping I can do another one with this hospital since I have to do two elective rotations.
