Renew an Active or Discontinued Medication

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 interaction (DDI) alert or a drug-allergy interaction (DAI) alert.

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.
