This week I showed the new V2.2 prescription printout to our pharmacists. They are happy with the modifications, but have a further questions and requests. What are your thoughts on all of them?
They are requesting that the allergies be on the top of the prescription, as that apparently is a standard. Sigh. Shame they didn’t identify this last time. They won’t vito accepting u using the prescription if it’s not changed, but it sounds like a sensible change to make anyway.
If we send a patient to pharmacy, when a prescription has been made in openeyes, what is the expected method for the pharmacists to alter the OE record, to say the medications have been issued?
Until the Allscripts integration is complete, pharmacy are willing for us to use OpenEyes directly. Is the system sufficiently mature that I can give them login access in pharmacy? They would then find the prescription in OE and issue it. How would they record that issuing?
- They say that the contact details of the prescription should be on the prescription (whether electronic or printed). In the paper world, the doctors put their bleep number or an extension number.
Again, I dont think they will vito use if it’s not done, but it does sound like a good improvement. We would presumably be best adding a contact number by default from the user account that could be overwritten when a prescription is written if needed.
- If I’m giving pharmacy back end access to keep the formulary up to date (they are willing to take on this role), which ‘formulary’ would they manage? At present there are two separate and different and non-connected versions, right?
