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 button 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.
The Electronic Prescriptions page opens.
Note: You cannot navigate to other areas of Dentrix Ascend while accessing ePrescribe through a patient's record.
Click (or tap) Add Patient Reported.
The Add Patient Reported Medication options appear.
Begin typing the name of a medication, continue typing as needed to narrow down the results list, and then select the correct medication. If the medication does not appear in the results list, finish entering the name, and then click (or tap) Add.
The medication now appears on the right.
Click (or tap) Save.
The patient-reported medication now appears on the Active Medications tab.
To exit ePrescribe, make sure that all your changes have been saved, and click (or tap) Done. Then, on the message that appears, click (or tap) Confirm.
