The issue involves the powerorders functionality, used within the powerchart and powerchart office systems.
Certain workflows that involve viewing multiple pts in the powerorders and other tabs could cause a mismatch between the identifying info displayed in the demographics banner and the clinical info displayed in the order profile.
It is possible for clinicians to place a new order or perform order actions on existing orders while the demographic-order info mismatch exists.
A clinician intends to perform an order action for one pt (pt b), whose name is displayed in the demographics banner, while the order action will actually be applied to another pt (pt a), whose order info is displayed in the order profile.
Mfr reporter has not been made aware of any adverse pt care events that resulted from this issue.
