Please ensure that all areas are using the most updated versions of the PPOs, that are approved in our area. If your area is batch printing PPOs, it is important to take note of these, to ensure that old PPOs are removed and new ones are put in their place and are ready for use. These, and all PPOs, may be found on the RQHR intranet PPO site: http://rqhweb/xpreprintedorders/ppohome.aspx

Please feel free to contact myself if you are unable to find a PPO or are looking for guidance in developing a PPO.
