Setting the Ordered By Field

The Ordered By field is used to describe who the order is being placed by. This may not always be the staff member who physically enters the order, such as a nurse putting in a surgery order on behalf of a provider. There is a user setting available to assist in defaulting this for individuals.

Once the order has been placed, the Ordered By cannot be changed. This ensures that orders expecting a result have an appropriate user to route the result for review.

The Ordered By field may also be used within the My Task - Orders to sort this list by this value, this is done in the Arrange By selection.
