If you need to order a schedule II controlled substance medication for a 90-day supply, for example for patients who maintain the same prescription, you can do so using the Batch button when sending a prescription from a patient's chart. This will create 2 additional medication orders with effective dates 30 days apart.
1. Go to a patient's chart and select Send eRx.
When you enter and select a schedule II controlled substance in the medication field a Batch button will appear. Enter a Days Supply and click Batch. The total days supply for the batch cannot exceed 90 days.
When you click the Batch button, 2 more copies of the medication will appear each with effective dates 30 days apart.
In the example below, the medications have effective dates of 6/10/2022, 7/10/2022, and 8/09/2022.
Scroll down and click Preview Prescription and send the medication as you would another controlled substance.
If your Days Supply total exceeds 90 days, you will receive an error message.
