Hold Scripts

Hold Scripts are scripts that have been entered but should not be filled immediately. (These prescriptions are also referred to as "Profiled" scripts.) If you are entering script information but the patient is not ready to receive their medication, you can click on the Hold button rather than choosing the Save option. Some of the features of Hold scripts are discussed below.

How Can I Tell when a Hold Script is Ready to be Filled? (Entering an Admin Date)

When you are entering a Hold script, you can mark a specific date that the script should be filled. Enter this date in the Admin date field. (You can click on the View All Dates button to display the Admin field.) Patients using the Customer Portal will be able to view their Hold scripts (along with active scripts). Any Hold script that has an Admin Date will show that date in the portal as the day the script is scheduled to be filled.

 

 

How Do I Find Hold Scripts?

Hold scripts will appear in the patient profile if you have selected the "All Scripts" filter. They will be highlighted and marked as "Pending Fill."

3.Adjust the script's information as necessary.
