V11 Specialty Favorites
==What are Specialty favorites==
A new feature of Touchworks V. 11 is specialty favorites. This is a pre-loaded list of frequently used items in the following categotries, arranged by specialty:
- Active Problems
- Family History
- Patient History
- Past Medical History
- Past Surgical History
- Social History
- Allergen - Med
- Allergen HX
- Order Immunizations
- Order Med Admin
- Orderable Item Rx
- Medication HX
The benefit of having the pre-loaded specialty lists is that it dramatically decreases loading time when searching for items from the clinical desktop.
- Review: The best practice for loading these favorites with an upgrade client is to first have the client review the favorites list and decide if the pre-deleived favorites will be useful, and to decide to either load the specialty favorites and edit them in test, or to not load the specialty favorites and to build thier own favorites lists by specialty.
- Check: If loading the Specialty Favorites from Allscripts make sure that you have the Orderable Concept Dictionary loaded and mapped to the Orderable Item Dictionary
- Load: Specialty Favorites are loaded via SSMT into the test environment.
- Adjustments: The client then can use the PAT Physician Administration Tool to Add/Delete favorites from the deleivered lists.
