How can I indicate that I am using the patient's own Medication? Print

If you use a PIMS/EMR software that is NOT integrated with SmartFlow, you have a few options to indicate an admission of patient's own medication:
To do this, we create a new medication with the letter "O" in the Name BEFORE the medication concentration. Enter the section, concentration, and picker type information. Please, leave the PIMS/EMR Name blank as this is not applicable. Leaving the EMR event ON means that the treatment will go over to the patient's medical record, but since the product does not exist in your PIMS/EMR system, it will not be billed. Then click Save:
Now in SmartFlow, we have the new item O 62.5 Clavamox Drops (created in SFS so no billing trigger attached) that can be added as a no-charge treatment. On the Flowsheet, in this example, we need to dispense the bottle of 62.5 Clavamox Drops through the PIMS/EMR first (it should be a billable item, that is mapped accordingly). So then we can do no-charge subsequent treatments with our new O 62.5 Clavamox Drops item:
NOTE: If you would like to charge for the dispensing of the patient's own medication, you will need to create a new O 62.5 Clavamox Drops item in your PIMS/EMR and assign a small fee to it. Then map this item accordingly in SmartFlow as billable one and use on the Flowsheet as usual. Also, you can create a separate Owner Med Admin Fee in your PIMS/EMR than map it in SmartFlow and use it to charge all the dispensing of the patient's own medication.
