Questions & Answers from the Webcast
Q: If I need to create an order that will be used for documentation purposes only, there is no result or charge for it so, is the set up the same?
A: Yes, the basic set up will be the same. However, there are sections in the set up that can be left blank. Those sections are: Results, Charge/MN, Specimen, Performing and Order Mapping. It is important to note that the Behavior section offers a check box to "Automatically Complete Upon the Order Becoming Active" found within that section. That needs to be considered in your build/workflow. The remaining sections should be carefully tested as they may be important factors in meeting the order objective. Keep in mind each new orderable item needs to be properly classify within the OID dictionary hierarchy.
Q: What if I have a certain orderable test that should only be used by one of the four sites in our organization? How could I set that up?
A: Using the Site Restriction option may work for in this scenario. In the Order Mapping section there is a blue "Site Restriction" set up. Clicking on that opens the 'assign site' box. The sites that are assigned are the only sites within the organization that will be able to see that orderable item in a search within the ACI. There is an order preference that needs to be set to 'Y' at the enterprise level in order for this restriction to actively work. The preference is found under Order- "Enable Orderable Item Selection by site filtering".
