Lab Update - Ordering Additional Testing for Ambulatory and Orders-Only Encounters

Enhancement updates provide short alerts to new, fixed or improved Connect Care functions...
  • Request for Additional Testing of Pathology Samples order status
We previously posted about the "Request for Additional Testing of Pathology Samples" order and the need to select a "Normal" rather than "Standing" or "Future" status for ambulatory encounters. To prevent delays in testing, as of March 28, 2024, there will be a preventative rule that will not allow prescribers to order with a "Standing" or "Future" status. If either of these options are selected while ordering in an ambulatory or orders-only encounter, a pop-up will appear that indicates that "Normal" must be selected.
