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.

How do I set up a nurse for proxy privileges?

Your scribe should be logged in as themselves, not the main provider, when they are scribing.

Note: Everyone should use individual logins so that their work can be tracked. The main provider will ultimately review and sign off on the note.

Here is a review of eprescribing privileges:

  • If an MA/Nurse is given Send privileges, then the MA/Nurse can send a script that a provider has written without making any changes.
  • If an MA/Nurse is given Proxy privileges, then the MA/Nurse can create and send a script for a med that has been tagged as available by proxy. This script will need to be cosigned at some point in the eRx Center. When creating the script the MA/Nurse will indicate who the supervisor is and their name will appear on the script.
  • Mid-Levels: If the NP has full eprescribing privileges and is not writing scripts via proxy, they cannot send another provider's scripts whether they are a mid-level or a physician. The reasoning behind this is that each provider is responsible for their work and if they make any changes to the prescription their name would need to be on the script. 
  • Staff who have send privileges can only send prescriptions as written.
  • Staff with full prescribing privileges could edit the prescription, and if they did it should be assigned to their name.

Prescription levels are set in the Staff/Provider directory and each person who has proxy privileges needs to have paperwork filled out with OP. Remember, for all the medications you would like your nurses to write, you must create a favorite for that medication and mark it as a proxy med.
