Physician Order Entry
Physician order management has come a long way from the early days of fax machines, but for many practices, computerized physician order entry (also known as computerized provider order entry or CPOE) is still fragmented. Fully functional CPOE implementation requires physician compliance as well as complete integration with your electronic health record (EHR) system. You can encourage CPOE adoption by using health information technology to create streamlined workflows, strengthening your clinical decision support system.
What Is Physician Order Management
Placing orders for items like chemical labs, pathology and imaging has long been an inefficient exercise. Even with the adoption of electronic health record (EHR) systems, the process has remained clunky and outdated.
The main challenge is that many EHR systems have no way to submit a complete electronic order to the lab or imaging center that will perform the work. Consequently, many orders involve an inefficient paper trail that is contrary to the purpose of digitized systems, and cannot easily or efficiently integrate with digital medical records.
It no longer has to be that way. Say hello to Happe-Orders, a powerful and convenient electronic solution for managing physician orders for labs, radiology, pathology and even durable medical equipment. Now care teams can enjoy an efficient and more accurate ordering process for things like lab and radiology procedures through a computerized ordering system.
Happe-Orders not only supports traditional lab orders but also pathology and imaging or radiology orders. We can also tailor the CPOE system for the durable medical equipment (DME) sector. The technology upon which Happe-Orders is built makes connecting to other destinations nearly limitless.
For physicians, this enhances the functionality of the EHR and provides a cleaner, more efficient ordering process. For lab companies and other providers, it provides a higher level of efficiency as well as greater order accuracy. For patients, it reduces the duplication of tests or imaging scans, and allows for faster results.
Full Ordering Capability and Monitoring
Establishing a link between systems is an important part of physician order management, but that alone does not ensure success. Managing the physician order entry connection from start to finish is just as important. This requires a robust monitoring system that provides insight to both the status of the connection as well as the data flowing from one healthcare provider to another.
Happe-Orders comes complete with the XSight dashboard. The XSight dashboard provides a clear view of all your connections as well as message statuses. No more wondering if a lab or other order was received or the corresponding result was sent; our modern health information technology ensures 360 visibility.
With Happe-Orders, lab results get processed directly back into the originating EHR system, so the patient record is updated as soon as results are available. This leads to more timely patient care and higher patient satisfaction, thanks to swifter, clearer communication between EHRs, labs, and other healthcare providers.
With our secure cloud communications, you can forget about the need to set up and maintain countless VPN connections. All connections are secured using SSL 2048-Bit encryption, providing highly secured HIPAA compliant transfers of data.
