Preorders provides a totally electronic means for orders to be entered and stored prior to the patient’s admission to a bed. The provider entering the order selects a date or date range that these orders can be used. A copy of these preorders is stored in StarPanel.
Once the preorders are entered, a “p”alerts displays to the left of the patient name on the wiz stat screen and in the orders column on the inpatient. Dashboards were created as a communication tool for the health care team re: preorders.
Once the patient is admitted to a bed, the preorders should be played back – usually by the MR or Charge nurse. Some orders such as chemo and research orders require an electronic approval by an attending in order to be played back – these will not show up play back until they are approved.
There are 2 ways to play back orders – through wiz or through starpanel.
