Distinguishing between order settings will make medication distribution more efficient by assuring that, for example, inpatient orders flow to automated dispensing systems like Pyxis and the inpatient pharmacies. Accurate ordering will also help to ensure accurate billing for medication charges. Providers should order the medication most appropriate to their setting.
