About Patient Chart: Medications Tab

Path: Smart Toolbar > Chart button > Medications tab

The Patient Chart is the central point of access to all areas of a patient's complete Medical record.  Use the Patient Chart to access and maintain patient records.  

All current, ongoing, and past prescriptions in a patient's record are displayed in the Medication tab. The Medication List is where new prescriptions are created, and existing prescriptions are edited, managed, refilled, and transmitted electronically to pharmacies.


Note:  Just like a paper chart, the Office Practicum chart, and other windows in Office Practicum, contain personal health information that should be kept confidential. You should treat all windows in Office Practicum (like F8 Chart) just like you would treat a paper record of patient health information, never leaving that record out in the open for others to see. More specifically, you should always close all windows on your screen and log out of Office Practicum when you are done at your workstation.
