Add Drug to Favorites List

The Favorites function enables a provider to add a drug being prescribed to a list of drugs prescribed most often. The medication is then conveniently available as a selection each time a prescription is created.

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 a New Prescription

  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 opens.
  3. Click Medications in the left menu. The Active Medications page displays.
  4. Click + Prescription at the top right. The Prescribe Medication  window opens.

Add a Drug to Favorites

  1. Enter the drug you want to prescribe in the Drug field.
  2. Click the "Add drug to favorites" box located below the Drug field. The drug is added to the Favorites  list and will be available the next time a prescription is initiated. The drug name, form, strength, instructions, quantity, dispense form, number of refills and whether a substitution is allowed will auto-populate the prescription.
