🎞️ View video tutorial: Prescribing non-medication treatments

Treatments are similar to prescriptions, except that they are used for any instructions given to a patient that do not involve a prescribed medication. When you create a prescription for a medical device, therapy, or another non-medication treatment, you do not have to search for the treatment as you do for medications. Instead, you can free-type the device or treatment name.


1. Start a prescription (see Creating prescriptions).

2. In the search field, type a name for the treatment, such as physiotherapy, crutches, or low sodium diet.

3. Optionally enter dosage and quantity information using the discrete entry fields.

4. Optionally enter any Additional Instructions or information. For example, if the prescription is for physiotherapy, you could enter “For rehab following ACL repair in the right knee”.

📌Note: If you modify any part of the medication name in the medication search field, a banner appears at the top of the screen indicating the prescription name has changed. Any populated fields are highlighted in yellow. Click Clear to remove the data from the highlighted fields or Keep if the information still applies to the new medication; the selected option is also automatically applied to the Extra tab.

5. Click Save.

6. Sign the prescription and, if necessary, choose a method of generating a copy of the prescription for the patient. For more information, see Signing prescriptions.
