Pool of Support
A scheme to create Hopkins' own computer consultants results in more than IT savvy.

When Maulik Majmudar was an intern, he remembers struggling with Hopkins Hospital’s new computer system to order medications and lab tests. “You’d type in a certain test and you had to try four or five different iterations to figure out how it was entered in the database,” he recalls. “We had to figure it out on our own.”

But this year, on July 1,  the hospital’s new crop of interns was met by an experienced team of nurses and physicians who provided tech support to them 24/7 for three days. The group was part of the POE (provider order entry) support pool that brings Hopkins-specific training to anyone new to the system.
