You can create a question asking patients to name their medications, document the dose and select the frequency.

The answers only appear in the patient Qnaire responses as patient reported medical conditions. If the Qnaire is linked to an encounter the answer appears in the History section.

The response cannot be linked to the patient's list of Active Medications in their patient chart.
