Ordering MABs for non-chemo indications


We have noticed an increase use of monoclonal antibodies (MABs)for non-chemo indications, and when prescribed it has been noticed paperwork or labs are missed.

To safely order MABs for non-chemo indications, how do others utilize the capabilities of their CPOE system? Has this been a concern at any other sites?

Thank you in advance for the responses. It is highly appreciated.
