Flagged Scripts Stage

There may be situations where you need to temporarily remove a script from Workflow in order to correct an issue before proceeding. For example, you may need to order more inventory or contact the patient before you complete the rest of the Workflow process. To handle situations like this, you may want to set up a "Flagged Scripts" stage.

 

To create a Flagged Scripts stage:

 

1.Click on the System menu item.

2.Select Workflow Setup. The Workflow Setup screen will open.

3.Click on the New Stage option.

4.Enter a Name for the stage (e.g., "Flagged"). You can also enter a Description.

5.In the Workflow field, search for your pharmacy's Workflow system.

6.In the Type field, click on the drop-down arrow and select "Normal."

7.You can unmark the Required For Checkout option.

8.Click on the Save button.

9.Click on the Requirements tab.

10.Click Add New.

11.In the Entry Requirement field, click on the drop-down arrow and select the "Flag" option.

12.Click Save.

13.Click on the Tasks tab.

14.Click Add New.

15.In the Task field, click on the drop-down arrow and select the "Undo Flag Item" option.

16.Click Save.

 

After you have set up a Flagged Scripts stage (such as the one described above), users will be able to mark scripts as "Flagged" from within other Workflow stages. To Flag a script, users can right-click on the script and select the Flag Item option. If you are working in another stage and realize that some action needs to be taken before the script can be processed, you can mark it as flagged and send it to your Flagged Scripts stage. The script will then be held in the Flagged Scripts stage until you open this stage and complete the "Undo Flag" task.

 

Please note that in order to use this stage properly you will need to ensure that every other stage has a "Not Flagged" Requirement. This means you will need to add an Entry Requirement of "Flag" to each stage and mark the Not checkbox. When this is done, flagged scripts will appear only in the Flagged Scripts stage.
