Duplicate Lab Order Notification

When ordering certain labs in Paragon, the system will now inform the user if the same lab has been ordered within a certain timeframe in hopes of eliminating duplicate labs.

If the same lab is ordered within a certain timeframe of the patient’s stay, the “Duplicate Interactions Found” window will appear. This window will inform the user that the lab has been ordered. Under the “Reason” section the user can see the timeframe in which the lab was ordered.
