I realize you sent this a while ago, sorry I didn’t notice the new topic until now. We have the same situation with vital signs from different sources at the same time. Did you get a response from helpdesk? I did send this question to IPRO back at the beginning, regarding two temps at the same time of different sources with different values, and response was ‘if they are truly at the same time you can report either’ but duplicate date/times are not ok.
So, we eliminated pulling duplicates into the data file. How best to resolve them we continue to discuss internally (ex. does an A-line BP take precedence over a cuff BP? Or vice versa?) Or, do we go by value, i.e. pull the higher reading or lower reading? For now, for multiple measurements at the same time we prioritize by source – so, a standard temp (i.e. oral/rectal/axillary/temporal) takes precedence over something like a ‘bladder’ or ‘internal body’ temp. It required programming changes and will continue to do so if the rules change.
I share your concern about audits! Please let us know if you received an answer from the Helpdesk.
