Chances are, you already ask your patients if they are currently taking any medications, so this requirement will simply be a modification of what you do with that information. This is a requirement that office support staff can help with just make sure you review their work.
To begin documenting the patient’s medications click the “Select Medication” button to bring up the medication search.
Once you have the medication selected, you can include additional information about the patient’s medication, such as who prescribed it, when they started taking it, and any instructions they have been given by the prescriber. Note: a Start Date is required.
Finish entering the remainder of their medications and on subsequent visits, verify that the patient’s Medication List is up to date.
