As you work with a patient in PCC EHR, you can order labs, x-rays, screenings, injections, supplies, medical procedures and tests, surgical procedures, handouts, and follow-up tasks. Select the appropriate items in the patient’s chart note and click “Order”. Then click “Edit” to enter details or modify tasks for that order.
Later, any nurse or provider can complete the tasks and optionally enter notes and results. They can do so right on the chart note, or with a quick link from today’s schedule, a dynamic Visit Tasks queue, or a special “Outstanding Tasks” component in the chart.

What is an Order in PCC EHR?: An order can be anything done for a patient. You create an order when you click “Order” for a lab, but you may also create orders for giving a handout or requesting a vision screen. Standard order types include labs, medical or surgical procedures, handouts, injections, radiology, screening, and supplies. Your practice can create custom orders for any purpose. All orders use the same kind of interface in the chart, and orders may have one or more tasks that can be picked up and completed elsewhere in PCC EHR.
