Breast Clinic Mammogram Order

  • 1.  Breast Clinic Mammogram Order

    Hello! I am hopeful that someone can help my facility! We are exploring how to create a "Breast Center" or "Breast Clinic" where patients can come for their initial screening mammogram. However, at the point that a positive result is identified during the screening the patient can then have additional images and/or ultrasound biopsy performed the same day or the next business day. Does anyone have a copy or template of their original provider order, protocol, order set, etc. that their facility uses for this type of workflow that essentially allows for these subsequent tests to be ordered? And how does your facility process these orders through Pre-Authorization so quickly?
