There are 2 internship projects on offer with Orion Health

Project 1: Quick Prescribing of Medications

A core part of a doctor's work is to create prescriptions for their patients. Prescriptions contain a number of data elements which the doctor needs to define. The process of entering in these data elements is both time consuming and has the potential for errors of data entry.

For many medications, there are are standard recommended dosages, which is frustrating for prescribing doctors who need to repeatedly enter the same or similar information. This project will enable the generation of medication order templates to manage these common orders. The end result is that a prescribing doctor can select a predefined medication order template, which will auto-populate the medication order, with the benefit of ease of use, speed, and improved patient safety.
