Feb 15, 2016 Update Notes


     *** DO YOU HAVE NEED TO PRINT 'ADVERSE DRUG EFFECTS' ON MARs? ***

For you that previously printed 'Side Effects' on MARs (Medication
Administration Records), this function became inoperative this past year as
the format in the PDE (Patient Drug Education) monographs became unreliable.

Medi-Span does offer a product, 'Adverse Drug Effects' that would meet this
need.  However, it comes with additional cost.  (So sorry that we cannot
reliably extract 'side effect' information from PDEs <sigh>).

So. . . 
IF you are interested in having FSI develop programming so that 'Adverse Drug
Effects' can be printed on MARs (or other 'Board and Care' related forms),
please let us know:
     ___ Very interested

     ___ Moderately interested

     ___ Somewhat interested

Also, PLEASE give us an idea what you feel would be a reasonable MONTHLY cost:

     $_______ per month
