Proxy (Prescriber Agent)

A Proxy or Prescriber Agent is any individual who creates and transmits a prescription on behalf of a provider. Office Practicum supports the use of Prescriber Agents to prescribe or refill specific medications on behalf of a provider. To review the Proxy workflow in OP, click here.

When a Proxy or Prescriber Agent prescribes a medication, Office Practicum adds that information to the eRx Summary. OP 14 also sends this information to the pharmacy.


When a Proxy or Prescribing Agent selects a Prescriber who uses a Supervising Provider, OP 14 automatically populates the Supervisor field in the Prescription Writer window with the Supervising Provider the prescriber selected the last time they sent a prescription.

Note: The Proxy or Prescribing Agent has the ability to edit the Supervisor field in the Prescription Writer window.
