Effective in TouchWorks Version 11, Favorites lists now exist at three “levels”:

1. Master Favorite List by Specialty (Allscripts delivered content)

  *Applied at the Enterprise level
  *Inherited by all users assigned to the specialty if no personal favorites exist
  *Remain intact when the user adds a personal favorite, however no subsequent master favorites are applied

2. Personal Favorites (QuickLists)

  *To prevent Master Favorites from being applied automatically, an administrator must add one favorite to the users personal
   list
  *Can add up to 100 items

3. Team Favorites (effective V11.4)

  *Available in PAT under Base and Charge
  *Favorites can specifically be applied to an entire Patient Care Team (PCT)
  *Prerequisites: Patient Profile - Edit and Note - Edit  security codes must be associated to 
  the user.  Only users, providers, user/providers, referring providers and entities can be defined as favorites.
