Copy a Prescription

Copying a medication is helpful when slight adjustments need to be made to a patient's existing prescription (e.g. increase/decrease the sig from once a day to twice a day) or when refilling electronically prescribed controlled substances. 

Follow these steps to copy a medication:

  1. In a patient chart, navigate to the medications chart tab.

  2. Navigate to the Medication History via the History button in the top toolbar.

  3. Click on the Medication you wish to copy. The row will highlight in blue.
  4. Press the Copy button.

  5. The copied medication will display on the Medication Summary Rx Pad. Modify your prescription as appropriate. Click the Print/Send button to complete your prescription.
