Make Changes to Patient Medication

Providers can make small changes to an active medication and send it as a new prescription without having to retype a brand-new script.

Navigate to Patient Chart / Medications

  1. Enter the first 2–3 letters of the patient's name in the top search box.
  2. Click to select the patient from the auto-populated results. The patient's chart / Face Sheet  opens.
  3. Click Medications in the left menu. The Active Medications page displays.



Make Changes to a Patient Medication

  1. Click the box next to the medication you want to change.
  2. Click Change at the bottom of the window. The Prescribe Medication window opens.



  1. If a drug-allergy or drug-drug interaction alert appears, click Cancel Rx to cancel the prescription, or select an override reason and click Continue Rx to override the alert.
  2. Enter the prescription changes.
  3. When finished, click Print to generate a paper prescription or Send to Pharmacy for an eRx. The changes are logged under the medication in the Active Medications list; click See All to the right of the medication to view them.
