I have examined the procedures/orders feature of oemr. I have a question with regards to how it will work for what we need done.
I added one of the radiology labs that we use to the address book. Then I added them as a provider under “procedures → providers”
I went to “procedures → configuration” and added a new “procedure order” of test type “imaging”.
My issue is that in setting up this order it is asking me to pick which lab to order from and it won’t let me leave it blank.
The reason this is a problem is that when the order is placed, the provider will need to be able to pick which radiology lab the order will be sent to. Am I going to have to set up a separate procedure order for every lab?
Also in the order the provider will need to be able to select what kind of imaging (xray, ct, mri) and select the body part that need the imaging done on it. Am I going to have to set up a separate procedure order for every possible combination of lab, imaging type, and body part?
I’m trying to determine if the procedures/orders feature will actually do what we need done. Am I looking at this feature wrong or is it not going to work for what we need?
