Q: Can you generate a prescription without having to create a new SOAP Note?
A: A SOAP Note will always need to be created when generating a prescription. Rx Manager (where prescriptions are derived from), reads the the Medication field in a SOAP Note. This workflow also keeps all prescriptions and medication history in one area.
For refills from the pharmacy that are handled from the All Refill Request Manager, a SOAP Note will be auto-created when the refill is replied to, and the information will be documented in the Medication field for you. That SOAP Note will then need to be signed off.
