iPrescribe: Search for and add a patient's pharmacy

This article will discuss how you can access the patient profile screen, search for pharmacies for specific patients, and add the pharmacy as a favorite.

Tip: Less is More. If you cannot find a pharmacy, use less information in the search.

Search using only the first few letters of the pharmacy name and the ZIP Code of the pharmacy; any search criteria that do not match the pharmacy record will be excluded from the search results.

1. Start on the iPrescribe home screen, tap the New Rx button.
