How To:

  1. In the patient’s chart, click the Medical Alerts Button.
  2. Click New Medical Alert(s) and select Medication.
  3. Click Search.
  4. Search for the medication.

Once you have added a patient’s medications, they are visible whenever you open the patient’s Medical Alerts, providing you vital information about your patient’s overall health.
