Diagnostic Imaging Orders
Diagnostic imaging (DI) orders can present unique challenges. Clinical decision supports (appropriateness guides) may be embedded and require additional information about the indications or urgency of a requested study.
Procedures Performed at a Different Facility
Some outpatient orders for "special" DI studies (e.g., CT, MRI) are handled differently depending upon whether the investigation will be performed at an AHS facility (with the order managed through Connect Care) or performed at a community (non-AHS) site using a non-Connect Care information system.
