The Medication section is a preconfigured section within MacPractice. As a preconfigured section, the Medication section cannot be changed.
The Medication section will write back into the database. This means that the patients can be found by running Medication reports in MacPractice. This Medication information will be visible by date in the Clinical Summary for the patient. Medications will also create a record in the Rx ability.
The Medication section can be setup to show just the active Medications or the entire history of Medications.
Check the Meds Verified every time the Medications are confirmed to be correct on the patient's chart.
If the patient does not have any active Medications, check the box to notate this on the patient's chart.
If a new Medication was prescribed by another office, click the reconcile button and select Add New List for Reconciliation. Identify the origin of the Medication list. If the list was sent from a referral, use the popup box to select an existing referral or select a referral from the database.
Click the Medications link to add the known Medications onto the patient's chart. Type in the name of the substance and press the return key on your keyboard to search your database. Once you have selected the substance, click the name of the Medication and enter in the details.
Continue to add Medications in this window until all known Medications have been added.
Click the Next button once all the Medications have been added. MacPractice will display which Medications are already on file and which Medications have been added during this transition of care. Uncheck a Medication box if there are two duplicate Medication records.
Click the Next button to see a final preview of the Medications on the patient's record. Click Next to finalize the Medication Reconciliation.
If a patient's Medication is no longer active, click the name of the Medication and uncheck the Currently Taking box. This will remove the Medication from the Active list but keep the record on the patient's account.
It is recommended to use the Prescriptions section if you are prescribing a Medication in the office.
