Orders entry and results reporting (OERR)

Orders entry and results reporting (OERR) Pathology and medical imaging

OERR was implemented in October 2016 and enables electronic ordering, specimen management and the ability to view documented results within the ieMR for medical imaging and pathology. The move from paper-based reports enables clinicians to order, manage, view and endorse documented results in a single patient ieMR record.

Electronic ordering has delivered significant benefits including:

  • greater accuracy of pathology and medical imaging orders
  • faster turnaround time for collections
  • electronic endorsement/sign-off of results
  • better collaboration with other clinicians
  • improved decision-making
  • reduced risk of error and duplicate collections.
