Make ordering simple and efficient

The lab and imaging ordering interface allows you to place orders quickly, right from the patient’s chart. You can start an order during the visit and save it for completion later, or delegate the order as a Task to another staff member for completion. Ordering in Practice Fusion offers many time saving features:

  • Place an order right from the patient chart with a workflow that’s simpler than paper.
  • Any test or set of tests can be saved as a template for future use, allowing you to quickly reorder a frequently used panel.

Drive better patient care

Instead of manually tracking patient orders and results, you can now see them in one accessible location in the patient chart. Easier access to all relevant patient information helps inform your care decisions to support better outcomes.

  • Instead of manually tracking patient orders and results, you can now see them in one accessible location in the patient chart.
