Resident Reference Guide for Allscripts TouchWorks
What is Allscripts TouchWorks? Allscripts TouchWorks software is a modular electronic medical
record that is used to automate the most common physician activities including prescribing, dictating,
capturing charges, ordering labs and viewing results, providing patient education, and documenting
clinical encounters. The TouchWorks modules currently being used at this organization are Document,
Rx+, Tasking, Note and Scan.
The Health Information Management Department uses Allscripts TouchWorks and HPF (Horizon Patient
Folder) to review, edit and sign off on specific dictated reports. Any questions regarding these functions
should be directed to the HIM transcription coordinator at ext. 4-5227.
Residents will use primarily the ‘Document’ module that will allow you to review, edit and sign off on
notes and documents that you have dictated. You will NOT have final sign authority. It will also allow
you to view notes and documents from other providers as well as Snapshot views of clinical information
including prescriptions entered by other providers. All users will also have access to the Tasking feature.
If you will be working in the outpatient setting where additional functionality has been implemented,
additional security and training will be coordinated by the Department.
Allscripts Access may be obtained by contacting Allscripts Support at 244-9300. Allscripts can be
accessed via the internet by a network connection, Web portal or a VPN obtained by Shands ITS. Once a
unique login ID is issued, users must create their own passwords. Passwords must be a minimum of 6
characters and contain at least one number.
