As with a paper chart, old medications are not deleted or “erased”. Any medication that should not be on the Current Medications list should be discontinued in order to keep an appropriate record. A medication that has been discontinued can be moved to the Current Medications list or re-prescribed directly from the Discontinued/Previous list.
Note: It is important to keep in mind that NewCrop will discontinue a medication if it is represcribed from the Current Medications list with NO CHANGES. If there is ANY change to a medication from the Current Medications list when re-prescribing, the old instance of the medication must be manually removed from the Current Medications list to the Discontinued/Previous list.
