Legacy eRx Medications
In Legacy eRx, a patient's current medications are listed under the Compose Rx tab. Legacy eRx uses the medications entered here when doing Drug Interaction Checks. When you write and transmit an electronic prescription, the medication will automatically list here. However, medications entered directly in Open Dental are not currently passed to Legacy eRx; you must manually enter them.
If a patient's current medication is not listed:
The medication will be added to the Current Medications list with a tan background to indicate it was added via the Med Entry tab.
To discontinue a current medication, check the pink Select box, then click D/C. The medication will also be marked discontinued in Open Dental when the Chart module is refreshed (a Stop Date will be entered). To change a current medication, click EDIT.
