Use the prescription list to create templates for prescriptions that your practice commonly writes. The template can include dosage, refills allowed, notes, and drug interaction alerts based on medications, problems, and/or allergies. Templates can be freely deleted or changed without changing any patient data. You can also write prescriptions that are not in this list, so you do not need to add every possible prescription.
