Tippy #20 - Patient List MD Notifications

Tippies can be quickly adopted with immediate workflow benefits...
  • Physician Notifications in Patient Lists
One of the more useful columns that can be incorporated in patient lists is "MD Notifications". The resulting list cell has a cloverleaf of alerts. Clockwise from top left, these are 1) New Labs, 2) New Notes, 3) Orders needing Cosign, 4) Notes needing Cosign.

These visual cues can help one focus on new information or unfinished work. However, the new labs and new notes indicators depend upon use of "Time Mark" in Results Review (Chart Tab) and "Mark All as Not New" in Notes Review (Notes Tab):

Making a habit of clicking these review timestamps when rounding can improve the usefulness of patient lists for task management.
