Proper Ambulatory Orders with a Single Conduit
An unacceptable number of exams are rescheduled every year due to inappropriate patient preparation, orders being poorly communicated, or orders simply being lost. iOrder resolves these issues.
- On average, 25 – 50% of ordering physicians don’t know whether their patients actually see the specialist.
- 3 out of every 10 tests have to be reordered because the original test results cannot be found.
- Only 54% of faxed referrals actually result in scheduled appointments with the specialist.
- Roughly 80% of all serious medical errors involve miscommunication during care transitions to different care settings.
- 20% of all malpractice claims involve missed or delayed diagnoses due to deficits in hand-offs between providers.
iOrder delivers the knowledge of the hospital to the initial point of patient care with the referring doctor so an appropriate exam is always ordered.

“We were having a lot of patients showing up that weren’t being prepped correctly. iOrder has cut down on that almost 100%. Our referring physicians would call and schedule with us but then it would take days before they would send us an order. Orders wouldn’t get faxed to us. The orders were incomplete. We would call and go back and forth to get what we needed. Now we have complete orders. iOrder has taken care of that.”
