Mar 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

SUBJECT LINE: "ADVERSE DRUG EFFECTS"

'OLD' (80x24) SOFTWARE CHANGES

15 Mar 16 software changes

1.  IV BAG LABELING - SAME BAG NUMBER
When printing labels for IV bags, there is often a need to print the same
label (for tests, prescriber review, etc) multiple times.  Previously, the
starting number would need to be 'reset' for each label.  Now, the number of
labels can be set to whatever number of the same bag number needs to be
printed AND set the 'Print' field (to the right of 'Label Format') to 'S' (for
same bag number) instead of 'Y'.

Thank you, and have a nice day.
