Abstract

The Medical Gopher was one of the first examples of a computerized physician order entry system. For decades, it captured the "best thoughts" of thousands of physicians at their particular moments in medical history. We hypothesized and found that electronic physician orders can identify important overarching trends in medicine through simple graphs, which can prompt both informed reflection and potentially action if redirection is needed.
