Add Historical / External Medications

Learn how to quickly add historical or external medications.

Updated over a week ago

This module is intended for historical/old medications you'd like to see in one place or for external prescriptions for which you only want to generate a quick script. For more information on the full medication feature, please read this article.

Add a Historical Medication

From the patient's Health Card, go to the Medications tab and click the purple button to log a new entry.

You'll see a form with some mandatory and optional fields, where you can add the product name, type (external or written), quantity dispensed, directions (these will also be part of the label that you can print), date prescribed (it can also be a past date, if you want to log a medication that the patient got previously, in a different clinic), status (active or inactive), and internal notes (you can use these to record different information or other changes such as dosage or directions).

View Prescriptions and Medications

All the medications added will be visible on the Health Card, with all the information. You can edit (or delete) an entry by clicking on the edit icon before the date. To change the status, simply click on it and select the new one.

You can print the script directly from the medication tab.

All the medications that are still active will also be displayed on the Record in the Medications tab. Read more about Active prescriptions here.
