Filtering the Order List
Use a filter when you want to limit the number of orders that are displayed on the Summary list. For example, you might filter the list to view only Laboratory or Radiology orders. Filters are defined by the institution and might differ than those described here.
The module header row keeps track of the number of order statuses currently displayed for the patient. For example, when no filter is applied, you might see “Orders (9)” in the header, and all of the available order statuses displayed in the summary list. If a filter is applied, the Filter button is displayed at the top of the summary list, with a label describing the filter criteria. For example, you might see “Orders (2)” in the module header, and the Filter button labeled, “Filtered by: Lab” to indicate that only the Lab order statues are shown. If you apply more than one filter, the module header counts the combined number, and the Filter button label lists each of the filters that are applied.
To apply a filter for Orders, follow these steps:
1. Tap Filter in the upper right corner of the Orders Summary screen.
The Filters screen is displayed and shows the following:
-The top of the screen displays a list of Filter Terms. The currently selected filter(s) are indicated by a checkmark.
-Below the Filter Terms, you may see additional filters by Source (the hospital or practice from which the order information was derived), if your organization has implemented the Health Information Exchange feature and it is enabled in your user profile. The currently selected filter(s) are indicated by a checkmark.
2. Select or deselect one or more filters from the Filter Terms or Sources.
If some but not all of the filters are selected, a Select All button is available at the bottom of the screen; tap Select All to select all of the available filters. If all of the filters are selected, a Deselect All button is available; tap Deselect All to deselect of the filters.
3. Tap Done.
The Orders Summary screen displays with the orders that match the filter criteria. The filter(s) remain selected until you choose something different.
To go back to showing all of the orders for the patient:
1. From the Orders Summary list, tap Filter in the top-right corner of the screen.
2. At the bottom of the Filters screen, tap Select All, and then tap Done.
All of the available orders are displayed in the Orders Summary list.
