Create Prescription

For providers who are a part of the eprescribing beta release, they can create e-prescriptions to send to an outside pharmacy for non-treatment medications by selecting the View Medications button in ESRD/AKI Mgmt tab or by clicking the "+Add RX" button under Clinical Summary tab.  For full details, please see the “ePrescribe” article.

NOTE: The ePrescribe process has two steps.  After the prescription is created, then the prescription has to be reviewed, signed, and an action selected for the prescription to be complete.  For full details on how to complete the prescription, please see the “Complete Prescription” article.
