Epic Tip of the Week: New Order Flag

Add the “New Orders” column to your patient lists to better supervise order entry on the wards.

The New Orders flag is a fantastic way to supervise order entry because it allows quick inspection of new orders, who placed them, and when – all from the patient census.

Add it to your patient list by selecting your MyList (1), clicking properties (2), searching for “New Orders” in the available columns (3), and clicking add (4).
