Sending a Single Prescription
- In the Plan of the encounter note where the prescription was added: right click on the medication and select "Send via eRx"
- From the patient's chart view: right click on the medication and select "Send via eRx"
Sending Multiple Prescriptions
To send ALL prescriptions in a SOAP/Encounter note:
In the SOAP/Encounter note, hover the mouse cursor over the Plan (Rx/Orders/Vaccines) box and select "E-Prescribe Rxs" from the menu that appears.
Otherwise, to send multiple prescriptions:
- Option 1. In the patient's chart, check the box to the left of each prescription in the Medications (Rxs) block. Click on the Manage Checked drop down menu in the upper right corner of the block and select "Route as eRx"
- Option 2. In an open SOAP/Encounter note, expand the Rx History pop-out. Check the box to the left of each prescription, click the Manage Checked drop down menu in the upper right corner of the block and select "Route as eRx".
Note on transmitting multiple prescriptions and controlled versus non-scheduled medications: if you are sending both controlled substances and non-scheduled medications, you should transmit the controlled substance rxs separately from the non-scheduled rxs (though you may send multiple controlled substance rxs as a group and/or multiple non-scheduled rxs as a group). You can transmit a mix of controlled substances/ non-scheduled medications (will ALL be sent via the controlled substances prescribing system), but it increases the chance of something not transmitting correctly. If you are sending multiple scheduled rxs at once, you will only need to enter the password/ security code once to validate.
If you need to send multiple controlled substance prescriptions with staggered start dates you will need to write the original prescription and send then right click renew, and change the start date to send the updated staggered start date prescription.
