02/18/2014 - Duplicate Alerts
ATTENTION ALL PHYSICIANS!!!
CPOE Medication Duplicate Alert Settings Change
(approved by MEC 02/03/2015)
Duplicate medication alerts will no longer popup when submitting orders in Paragon. Prescribers will no longer receive and alert when ordering two of the same medications or two medications within the same therapeutic class.
Previously duplicate alerts required an overrride reason to be entered:
**PRESCRIBERS WILL NO LONGER BE ALERTED**
The only way to view duplicate alerts will be to click on the Rx Alerts button within the CPOE Order Queue. A window will open to display all alerts:
A small triangle icon will appear temporarily next to the medication that was ordered. This is only visible until the pharmacy has processed the order (medication is in "Add Pending" status).
Duplicate therapy alerts will appear in pharmacy. For duplicate therapy alerts that require clarification before the order can be processed, pharmacy will send an Order Clarification.
