How to get there
If the correct patient is not already selected, use the Patient Search box to access the patient's record.
On the Patient menu, under General, click (or tap) Prescriptions.
The patient's Patient Prescriptions page opens.
On a patient's Patient Prescriptions page, on the Prescription menu, click (or tap) New Electronic Prescription.
Note: The New Electronic Prescription option is available only if the patient has a status of "New" or "Active."
If you are a proxy user (a provider who can prescribe only on behalf of another provider), the Please select who you are acting on behalf of dialog box appears; otherwise, skip the next step.
From the Possible Prescribers list, select a provider whose user account has ePrescribe enabled, and then click (or tap) OK.
If the patient is younger than 18 years old and does not have a height and weight entered in ePrescribe, the Enter Patient's Height and Weight dialog box appears. You cannot perform any tasks in this patient's ePrescribe record until after you enter a height and weight; otherwise, skip to step 5.
Do the following:
To specify the height, select the unit of measure (in or cm) from the Height Unit list, and then enter a value in the Height box.
To specify the weight, select the unit of measure (lb or kg) from the Weight Unit list, and then enter a value in the Weight box.
Click (or tap) Save.
The Electronic Prescriptions page opens.
On the Active Medications tab, locate the desired prescription.
From the corresponding Actions menu, select Remove.
The Remove Active Medication dialog box appears.
Select the reason that you are deleting the medication.
Click (or tap) OK.
If the medication was marked as Completed or Discontinued, it now appears on the Inactive Medications tab.
