In order to sign a result and remove the Lab Result item from the Tasks list, you will first have to ensure that the result has a:
- Provider and Order number selected
- Patient selected
Once all fields are completed, the “Sign all results” button will appear in the top right hand corner. Clicking this button will sign all observations within the result simultaneously.
If you have multiple observations, you can also check off the individual observations you want to sign, and the button will then display “Sign selected result(s)”. If applicable, multiple providers can sign off on different observations within the result.
Note: To remove the lab result from the Tasks list, you must sign all observations within the result. If any unsigned observations remain, the lab result will remain in your incomplete Tasks list.
Once you click the orange Sign button, the results will be signed, you cannot unsign a result.
After signing, you'll be able to review each signing provider's signature and timestamp. This information will be available both within the result and within the patient's Timeline.
