Example Scenarios

Uses of communication request include

  • A computer-based decision-support system requesting a reminder or alert be delivered to a responsible provider
  • A physician requesting notification from the nurse if a patient's temperature exceeds a value
  • A monitoring system or a provider requesting a staff member or department to notify a public health agency of a patient presenting with a reportable communicable disease public health agency

As indicated above the request, may represent an order that entered by a practitioner in a CPOE system as well as a proposal made by a clinical decision support system (CDSS) based on a patient's clinical record and context of care.
