Medication availability checks
When prescribing a medication from a patient’s active medication list, Practice Fusion will check the medication’s market availability. If the medication is no longer on the market or the NDC (National Drug Code) has changed, you will receive a notification when beginning the prescribing workflow and must take action in order to proceed with the order.
Selecting Choose new will cancel the order in progress and initiate a new medication search. If you opt to select a new medication and proceed with the order, the new medication will be added to the patient’s active medication list and the old medication will be discontinued in the patient's chart.
Alternatively, selecting Cancel within the alert will discontinue the prescribing workflow. The medication will remain in the patient’s active medication list and no prescription order will be sent.
