Supervising Provider

A supervising prescriber is a prescriber who supervises another clinician for some aspect of care provision. Authorizing providers, who can be trainees, may still need to identify a supervising prescriber for some activities.

The supervising provider in Epic-speak applies to more than ordering workflows and includes things like co-sign requirements.
