Use the Orders by Visit report to find incomplete orders for a date range, or all orders of a specific type.
You can work with patient orders in several places in PCC EHR, and depending on your focus, each place is useful. You can update an order in the patient chart; you can see open orders for a day in the Tasks column on the Schedule screen; and you can review a list of all orders on the Visit Tasks queue.
What about orders that have been open for a while? What if you need to see all orders of a specific type (such as referrals) in one list, in order to see how your practice is doing?
The Orders by Visit report finds all patient encounters in a selected date range and displays orders associated with those appointments. The report can be filtered by provider, order name, order status, and location (for multi-location practices).
Example: Find All Incomplete Referrals From the Previous Month
If you need to see all referrals from the past month that are not complete, how can you get that list quickly without combing through the Visit Tasks queue? Use the Orders by Visit report to create a list.
