Grouping favorites in Paragon

Make order entry faster

Introduction

By now you probably have figured out that creating your own favorites list is the fast way to enter orders in Paragon webstation for physicians. But very quickly you may find that your favorites list is getting too long and cumbersome to sort through. Additionally when there are many favorites it is easy to forget an order say when writing a group of orders for fever etc.
Grouping orders under labels is an efficient way to group orders.

  1. Labels can be by diagnosis such as pneumonia or by class such as radiology
  2. The same order can be in more than one label – in the example below acetaminophen is to be added to fever and ICU labels.
