How Do I Refill a Script?

1.Type part of the patient's name into the search field. (You can also choose a specific script by typing "rx" followed by the script number.)

2.Select the correct patient and press Enter.

3.The Patient Profile list will open. Select the correct script and click on the Fill Script button. (Note: If there is no quantity due for this script, you will be taken to the Refill Request window. From here, you can send a request to the doctor for a refill.)

4.The Script Filling screen will open with the preselected information for the refill.

5.Make any necessary adjustments to the script's information. Enter authorization in the Pharmacist and Tech fields.0

6.When you are ready to refill the script, click the Save button.

 

When you are refilling a script, all the patient's other fills for that drug will be displayed on the left. You can click on the small Preview option next to each fill to review its details.

 

 

How Can I Request More Refills from a Doctor?

If a script has no more quantity due, you can send a refill request to the doctor. The Refill Request window will appear whenever you choose a script without quantity due and click Fill Script. You can also find this option by selecting a script in the Patient Profile and clicking on the Preview Script button. From the Preview window, you can click on the Options button and choose the Manage Refill Requests option.

 

 

What if a Script is Refilled Too Early?

In the Options screen, you can choose a percentage of the Day Supply that should be completed before a script is refilled. If you try to refill a script before this percentage is reached, a message window will display stating that it is too soon to refill. You will be asked if you would like to continue. If you want to refill the script anyway, click on the Yes button to proceed.

 

 

What is the Default Quantity for a Refill?

When you refill a script, the default Dispense Quantity will be the same amount that was dispensed on the last fill for this script. You can change the Dispense Quantity if necessary.
