Pharmacist's Role in Releasing orders in EPIC

We are transitioning to EPIC this fall and one of the work flows that has been suggested is that pharmacists will be responsible to release the orders for certain patients such as cath lab and surgery etc.
I am reaching out to see if any facilities follow a similar process. My limited experience with EPIC and releasing orders usually involved the physician or the nurse.
Any input is greatly appreciated
