Improve efficiency with prescription task delegation
You asked, we delivered! You can now assign trusted members of your practice the ability to complete specified prescription-related administrative tasks by enabling prescription task delegation in your practice settings. Authorized practice members can assign patients to refill requests, approve or deny refill requests, and create prescription drafts for a prescriber’s review, helping prescribers spend more time with their patients. Prescription task delegation settings are managed by administrators at the practice level. Learn more about prescription task delegation»

Streamline your e-prescribing workflow with patient preferred pharmacy
You can now specify a patient’s preferred pharmacy in the Profile tab of their chart, helping you save time by automatically populating this information when sending an e-prescription for the patient. Learn more about selecting a preferred pharmacy»


  • Affected providers will no longer encounter an error message when saving new patient charts with custom patient record numbers.
  • Immunization registry upload settings will once again display properly in the patient chart when logging out of and back in to the EHR.
