Tippy #19 - Avoid Duplicate Orders

Tippies can be quickly adopted with immediate workflow benefits...
  • Duplicate Order Avoidance
It is better to prevent overlapping or duplicate Orders than to try to clean clutter after a long inpatient encounter.

One way to recognize possible duplicates, and discontinue predecessor Orders immediately, is to note the visual cue appearing when Orders are being lined up for signing:

The small purple square to the left of the new Order contains a digit reflecting the number of possible duplicates. Clicking on the number brings up a popup summary of possible duplicate(s), with buttons that can be used to discontinue right away.
