Can PF make the lab orders section so that providers can just enter the lab tests they want instead of searching for them by typing?
We do all of our labs in-house and don't bill so it takes a lot longer to search by word for a lab test versus just typing for example : cbc, cmp, etc. Please consider an option to manually enter lab tests.

We are able to add synonyms (keywords) to tests. We added a synonym for this test. You can now find it by typing CMP, or Complete, or Comprehensive M.
Also, there is the option to "Add a custom test" when you have typed something that is not in our system.
If there are additional tests that you are having trouble finding, just post them here and we can add synonyms to help you find them.

As it is now providers have to type for example "complete metabolic panel" in the search bar and then select the exact test from those their lab offers from the drop down menu and then repeat the process all over again for the next test. It would make it easier to just have a free type section where the provider can type " cmp (instead of "complete metabolic panel"), etc" without having to go through and pick the test from a large group in the drop down menu. We draw our own labs in-house so the order doesn't even go to our lab company.
It would be nice to have the option of a free type section without having the requirement of having to search for the appropriate test.
