Set Up Drug Favorites List

Creating the Drug Favorites List gives providers an efficient selection of the drugs prescribed most often when adding medications to a patient's chart or initiating a prescription.

Providers can also add a drug to favorites on the fly when prescribing a medication through a patient's chart.

Important Note: Once a drug favorite is added to the list, it cannot be edited. If necessary, delete the drug favorite and create a new one.

Navigate to Drug Favorites

  1. Hover over the User icon in the upper right corner and select My Settings. The My Settings window opens.
  2. Click Drug Favorites in the left menu. The Drug Favorites List opens.
