We are currently updating the OP Help Center content for the release of OP 14.19 or OP 19. OP 19 is a member of the certified OP 14 family of products (official version is 14.19.1), which you may see in your software (such as in Help > About) and in the Help Center tabs labeled 14.19. You may also notice that the version number in content and videos may not match the version of your software, and some procedural content may not match the workflow in your software. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make these enhancements.

Patient Chart: Medications

Version 14.19

About Patient Chart: Medications

Path: Clinical tab > Patient Chart button > Medications
Path: Practice Management tab > Patient Chart button > Medications
Path: Billing tab > Patient Chart button > Medications

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  window. 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.
