Receive a New eScript

If you receive a new prescription electronically, the system displays the Prescription Entry Rx Info window as a Get Next task at the designated workstation. The system creates an order in the system, so you need to complete only Data Entry for the prescription. However, if the system locates all prescription data (prescriber, drug, etc.) and no notes or hard halts are associated with the prescription, the prescription might go directly to Data Verification.

On the right half of Prescription Entry Rx Info window, the system displays all information received from the prescriber in the Information From Prescriber section. On the left half of the window, you enter the information as you do for a regular new prescription.

Notes:

  • If the system finds an exact match on the Dispensed ID of the prescribed drug on your system, it enters the prescribed drug name and highlights the field in yellow.

  • To set up a workstation to process new electronic prescriptions, you select the Escript Tasks checkbox on the Workstation Configuration Workflow window (Tools > Workstation Configuration).

  • To set up a workstation for eScript error handling, select the Escript Tasks checkbox on the Workstation Configuration Workflow window (Tools > Workstation Configuration).

  • To view the system-generated hard copy for the prescription, select View Hardcopy. You can also view a list of system-generated images for new prescriptions you receive and print the images on the System-generated Hard Copies window (Tools > Backtag and Hard Copy Printing and select System-generated Hard Copies).
