  • Dispensary – Patient Medication Records (PMR) [4587]:
    • A patient medication record in mSupply is a record of items a patient is taking/using. The list is populated when an item of medicine is prescribed to the patient through mSupply.
    • PMR also contains information about when the medicines are taken. In this way the form becomes a “master list” of what the patient is taking, when to take each item, and other info such as potential side effects.
    • View the patient Medical Record by clicking Show Patients from the Navigator, selecting the patient and viewing the PMR tab of the Patient details form.
  • Dispensary – Printing: It is now possible to print prescriptions to an ordinary printer – not just to a label printer.
