DocStation generates a New Medication Task when it finds a claim for a new medication/new ingredient for your patient. This task presents an opportunity for you to follow up with the patient to ensure their new therapy is effective, doesn't cause adverse reactions, and find out whether they have any questions. 

To begin the task, select "Start". The details of the new medication will be listed first. Click near the medication name to open the item and add instructions, adherence, related items and notes as needed. After making updates, select "Save" to close the window. Then, select any other interventions performed and education provided by clicking the applicable boxes.

You can also jot down notes or indicate any related items from other sections of the profile as needed, like conditions or drug therapy problems.

Once you've captured all the pertinent details, click "Continue" to automatically generate applicable documents (like eCare Plans for CPESN member pharmacies), or click "Save and Close" if you want to pause your work and come back to it later.

As always, DocStation relies on the pharmacist's knowledge of the patient when it comes to relevancy of tasks, so if a task is not relevant to the patient, or if the patient refuses the consultation, or something else comes up that prevents you from completing the task, you can archive it instead. Select the (...) icon on the right side of the task card, then select "Archive" and choose the most applicable reason. Then select "Archive Task". If you've already started the task but decide to archive it instead, select the same (...) menu and select "Archive".
