Patient Locator and Status

For how to set these values in TWAdmin see: Creating Patient Location and Patient Status information

New Functionality from the new Clinical Toolbar in TouchWorks which allows an assignment of the patient’s location and status as part of tracking a patient through a clinical visit. This allows the physicians and other clinic personnel to know which room a patient is in.

  • Both appear in:


Patient Locator

This will be created specific to the clinic. Therefore if a clinic has exam rooms 1-11, we will create not only a waiting room locator, but a locator for each exam room. This will also include a locator for a lab, imaging, procedure room, etc. if a clinic has such rooms.
