- Double click on the desired medication.
Complete the Medication Sub-Items
Complete all of the sub-items for the medication, including Strength, SIG (Dose, Freq, Route), Dispense, Substitutions, Refills, Pharmacy Notes, and Days Supply. To complete the sub-items, click on the item and select the desired option from the SMARText Quick Access window.
2. Open Rx Manager

- Preferred Pharmacy Selection
In addition, users can also set the patients default pharmacies from within Rx Manager. Using the drop down menu, select the pharmacy, then click either the (1) (2) or (3) favorite icons to indicate this pharmacy is a 1st, 2nd or 3rd preferred pharmacy for the patient. This will allow the patient to indicate a preferred retail, mail order, or other pharmacy to be recorded on their chart, and this setting will be saved to the patient's Demographics chart section.
