EHR Lab Order RAD codes
Lab orders for RAD codes (radiology orders) can be manually entered using the lab order interface and imaging results can be attached. This is an older method of entering CPOE radiology orders, but still valid. To be considered a radiology order the Service Identifier (LOINC Codes) must have a class type of RAD. For an order to count as CPOE, a provider must be logged on when the order is created.
Only orders entered after December 31, 2013 show. To view prior orders, click Labs/Rads on the EHR dashboard.
