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.

Proxy (Prescriber Agent)

Version 14.19

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.
