Orders that have not had signed approval by the physician are considered unsigned orders. These orders are reviewed, then signed or disputed.
To sign an individual order:
Step 1: Tap the applicable order
Step 2: Review the order details and, as appropriate, tap Sign
Alternate Option: Select the Sign icon
A provider has the ability to review and take collective action on all recent orders entered in the past 7 days, given the contemporaneous nature of those orders. The orders under the header of Orders Entered in Past 7 Days are sorted based on the order’s Entered Date from the most recent to the oldest. The physician may sign each order or dispute the order if there is an issue for the care team to address. The count displayed to the right of the queue name reflects the number of orders in the queue. The list can be minimized by clicking the minus sign in the right corner of the header bar.
To sign all recent orders:
Step 1: Review the order details
Step 2: Tap the checkbox next to the Patient header to select all recent orders or individually select the specific orders
Step 3: Scroll to the bottom of the list and, if appropriate, tap SIGN SELECTED
NOTE: The "Sign Selected" button is disabled until at least one order is selected by using the checkboxes.
NOTE: If the provider needs to dispute an individual order in the Orders Entered in the Past 7 Days queue, please refer to Disputed Orders. The dispute functionality is the same for all queues.
The second queue available is All Orders. This queue displays all of the provider’s unsigned orders and allows the provider to act on up to 20 orders at a time. The count displayed to the right of the queue name reflects the number of orders in the queue. Please note that this number includes orders that are in the Orders Entered in the Past 7 Days queue - if those orders are acted upon, this total number will decrease. The All Orders list is sorted based on the order’s Entered Date from the oldest order to the newest.
To sign a group of up to 20 orders:
Step 1: Review the details for all selected orders
Step 2: Scroll to the bottom of the list and, if appropriate, tap SIGN ORDERS (20)
Orders can be signed on an individual basis by selecting the specific orders. To select specific orders, tap the selection box to the left of the order prior to tapping the option to sign at the bottom of the screen.
NOTE: The "Sign" button is disabled until at least one order is selected by using the checkboxes.
