NewCrop is set up to help prescribers perform various tasks, from creating new prescriptions from scratch to addressing refill requests from the pharmacy. While a prescriber's exact process will be determined by their agency and their day, these step-by-step guides outline some of the most common workflows for NewCrop prescribers.
A Day in the Life of a Prescriber
- Create a New Prescription: Use the Drug Search to create a new prescription from scratch.
- Prescribe a Favorite Prescription: Quickly access a list of common prescriptions using the Favorites List. This can really save you time!
- Renew an Active Medication: Renew a current prescription from the Active Medications list.
- Assign a Patient Pharmacy: Add a new pharmacy to the Patient Pharmacies list.
- Answer a Renewal Request: When a prescription has run out of refills, the pharmacy can send a renewal request to the prescriber through NewCrop. Approve, Deny or Replace renewal requests from the Pharmacy Renewal Requests section of the Tasks page.
- Answer a Change Request: The Pharmacy Change Requests list displays prescriptions that a pharmacist has requested substitutions or changes for prior to filling, or that require a prior authorization. Approve, Deny or Replace pharmacy change requests from the Tasks page.
- Address Pending Prescriptions: Review a list of pending prescriptions from the Tasks page. From here, you can see the patient, drug, prescriber, location, and date for every pending prescription at your practice. After reviewing the unsent prescriptions on the Tasks page, you will need to locate the patient in your EMR to access the pending prescription and send it to the pharmacy.
- Address Failed Prescriptions: Address prescriptions that failed to transmit to the pharmacy from the Tasks page. From here, you can resend or cancel a prescription, report a prescription as missing, or request prior authorization.
- Run the Prescriber Report: Review the prescriptions sent during a given time period (30 days max).
