Physicians seeking access to patient records during the downtime will use the PRDSRO environment (icon on workstation screens and MyApps) and will record orders on sheets from Downtime Toolkits available in all facilities and clinics.
Some prescribers do not appear to be taking full advantage of the decision supports embedded in the clinical information system (CIS). In particular, possible duplicate laboratory tests are recognized by visual cues during ordering and possible duplicate meds are flagged with alerts.
This is an important CIS protective to heed.
Some discrepancies in the labelling of a few tests in orders and elsewhere in the chart (e.g., "creatinine, serum" and "creatinine") are resolved.
A tricky workflow to print DI requisitions for patients going on an LOA for procedure to non-Connect Care sites has been improved and will be in production (with automated printing) Monday.
