Viewing Existing Orders
The Existing Orders section is located in the body area of the Orders Summary, below the New Orders section (if present). This section lists all signed and submitted orders for the patient, including those entered by yourself and others.
At the top of the Existing Orders section, there are a series of headings:
The first heading tells you about the filters that may be applied. For example, if you are only showing Lab order types, it might say “Filtered By: Lab, Yesterday / Tomorrow.”
The second heading tells you with which visit the orders are associated. If the patient has orders from multiple visits, the orders for the currently selected visit are listed first under the Current Visit heading (note that the currently selected visit is listed at the top of the screen). If the patient has orders associated with any other visits, those orders are listed next, under the Other Visits heading. You can tap either visit heading to expand or collapse the orders underneath it.
Below the headings, each order is then displayed on a separate line. The left column shows an icon representing the Order Type. Next is the Order Description, followed by the Start Date of the order, and then the Order Status (such as Active, Completed, or Pending). If the order is an expiring medication order, there is a comment in red below the description that indicates the date that the medication will expire (for example, Expires tomorrow at 9:30 AM).
If orders entered in the Transfer Order Reconciliation module have been configured to be held for routing until the patient actually transfers, they will display as follows:
For a new medication order placed in Transfer Order Reconciliation, the order has a Held for Routing status with the label New Upon Transfer, to indicate that the new order is waiting to be sent to the back end system until the patient actually transfers. In Mobile CPOE, the provider cannot modify or discontinue the order.
For an order that was discontinued in Transfer Order Reconciliation, the order has an Active status with the label Stop upon Transfer, to indicate that it will be discontinued in the back end system once the patient actually transfers. In Mobile CPOE, a provider can modify or discontinue the original active order (prior to the patient being transferred), if necessary.
For an order that was continued in Transfer Order Reconciliation, the order has an Active status with no additional label. The order will be continued in the back end system once the patient actually transfers. In Mobile CPOE, a provider can modify or discontinue the original active order (prior to the patient being transferred), if necessary.
Orders that are entered in PatientKeeper CPOE (web or handheld) and that have not yet been processed by your source HIM system are shown in italicized font. PatientKeeper orders that have been processed, or orders that were entered directly in your source HIM system, are shown in regular font.
To view or manage the details associated with any existing order, just select the order row.
