Oncology Powerchart

Does any one here using EMR for Oncology? As an Oncology Nurse, we need a cosignature from a 2nd RN. Now that we have Electronic Records, we kind of use the term esignature. As far as I know, esignature requires a user name and a password. If you just type in the 2nd RNs name, and she doesn't type in her password, then it's not the same as cosigning. Does it make sense? Any input is appreciated. Thank you.

That's correct. We used electronic charting for oncology as well and the other nurse has to sign using his/her username and password to show that they verified the chemo with you.

Thanks for the confirmation :-)

In the system that I used in the hospital: I could log in as myself, scan the chemo, type in the second RN's name and then when I hit "sign", the system would automatically pop up and request her signature so we'd both have signed that we verified the chemo.
