Radiology Order List
For EHR providers, radiology orders must be entered using CPOE, meaning they must be entered or approved by a provider. Starting in version 15.4, all procedures marked as Is Radiology are automatically flagged as radiology orders. By default, all x-ray procedures (D0210 - D0340 and D0364 - D0386) are marked Is Radiology in the Procedure Code List. To count as CPOE, the EHR provider must add it themselves or approve the radiology procedure before it is marked complete.
Radiology orders are automatically marked as CPOE when the EHR provider is logged on and does the following:
A radiology order is not marked CPOE when another user is logged on (non-EHR provider) and does the following:
If the logged-on provider has radiology orders with a treatment planned (TP) status that are not already marked CPOE, an alert shows in the Open Dental menu bar. These alerts only show for providers with EHR Annual Provider Keys who are subscribed to Radiology Order alerts. See Alerts to subscribe the provider to the alert.
These orders can be quickly approved by the provider using the Radiology List.
All of the provider's upcoming radiology procedures that are attached to scheduled appointments, have a status of treatment planned (TP) and are not yet marked CPOE will list. The goal is for this list to be empty, meaning all of the logged-on provider's radiology procedures are already approved. If a non-EHR provider is logged-on, the list will always be empty.
To approve selected orders only, highlight the orders, then click Selected.
Notes: To show in the radiology list, procedures must meet this criteria:
If a procedure is marked as is hygiene and the appointment is scheduled in the hygiene operatory, the procedure will show in the Hygienist's radiology list.
