Order checking • Component of order entry • Based on a system of rules, which review orders to see if they meet defined criteria. • If they meet the criteria, an electronic message is sent to the ordering provider before the order is completed (such as duplicate order, drug-lab interaction, etc.). • The provider can then choose to cancel the order or override the order check and place the order
Order Checks Review existing data and current events to produce a relevant message that is presented to patient care-givers. A real-time process that occurs during the ordering session and driven by responses entered by the ordering provider. Messages are displayed interactively during the ordering session. Notifications Review existing data and current events to produce a relevant message that is presented to patient care-givers. Notifications occur behind the scenes, monitoring data as it flows through RPMS and when certain trigger events occur. Order Checks & Notifications
