Kareo Clinical makes it easy to renew both active and discontinued medications from a patient's chart. When renewing a medication, note the following:

  • Medications that were added to a patient's chart for informational purposes may require a new prescription if required information (such as instructions or quantity) was not included.
  • When renewing in response to an "Rx Renewal Received" message, the prescription information may be changed.
  • A renewed prescription may trigger a drug-drug interactions or a drug-allergy interaction alert.

Access Patient Medications

  1. Enter the first 2–3 letters of the patient's name or date of birth (mm/dd/yyyy) in the top navigation bar search box.
  2. Click to select the patient from the auto-populated results. The patient's Facesheet page opens.
  3. Click Medications. The Active Medications page opens.

Renew Medication

  1. Click to select the medication(s) to renew under the Active or Discontinued tab.
  2. Click Renew. The Renew Selected pop-up window opens.
  3. Edit the Quantity, Refills, Days Supply, Pharmacy, and Pharmacy Notes as desired.
  4. Select how to send the Rx Savings Coupon to the patient.
  5. Click Renew. The prescription opens as a PDF. Print the prescription using the browser's print function.

Once the medication is renewed, the changes are logged under the medication in the Active Medications list. Click See All to view additional details.
