Make changes to a current prescription without having to start from scratch.
Edit a Prescription
- Locate the medication in the Active Medications list from the Compose Rx tab and click the Edit button.
Note: Click Details from the Edit button drop-down to see a list of previous changes to the prescription in the Prescription History table.
- Adjust the Sig Information as needed.
Note: The dispense information can not be edited if the prescription is in the Active Medications list, as the patient may already have picked up the prescription. Likewise, changes to Quantity or Frequency will not recalculate the Dispense Quantity.
- Click Update to save the new directions.
Note: To send the new version of the script to the pharmacy, select Prescribe from the Update button drop-down. Alternatively, select Queue Rx from the Update button drop-down to move the script to Pending status.
- If the prescription was previously transmitted and there are refills on file, the user will be prompted to notify the pharmacy of the change. Click Yes to notify the pharmacy. Click No to return to the Compose page without notifying the pharmacy.
