When you call up a drug in Vision through the “Acute Therapy – Add” or “Repeat Master – Add” screens (which includes Re-authorise), your assigned message will be displayed in an “information prompt screen” as shown below if a text match is found in either the drug name or drug class.
The program is made up into two sections:
- Add the drug name (or Drug Class) text you want to search when prescribing
- Add and assign a message to display when found.
When you first start the program no interface will be displayed, it will just show an icon in the bottom right corner of the screen where the system clock may reside.
Right mouse click on the icon to display the menu (as shown)
Select - Add Therapy to List
This will open a txt file for you to add drug name (or Drug Class) text. These names may be the full drug description or partial words and MUST each be entered on a separate line.
The program will search for ANY word you enter in the txt file, to any found
in the Vision drug name or drug class
upon being added to the patient record. It is not case sensitive.
NOTE: Whatever you type in this Therapy.txt file must be
an EXACT match to a portion of the drug
description in Vision!
Therefore make sure you enter correct drug descriptions, i.e. those found
exactly as shown in the
drug description (or drug class) when prescribing in Vision. Entering less text will produce more hits.
For example entering “ASPIRIN” will display your message wherever the word “Aspirin” appears
Entering “Aspirin 75mg dispersible tablets” will only display the prompt
if this specific drug is
These examples would not work:
- Aspirin dispersible 75mg tablets (The string of text is written the wrong way around)
- Aspirin 75mg disp tab (These abbreviations do not exist in the drug description)
- Aspirin 75 dispersible tablets (This is missing “mg” off the strength)
Close the Therapy.txt file when you have finished entering the drug descriptions.
Now select – Setup Script Messages
Click the Drug Name… drop down list and you will see the names you entered
previously will be
Once you have selected your drug text, enter the message you would like displayed when this drug
is prescribed in Vision or match to a drug class.
Then click “Save Message”
Repeat the above for each drug message and click the Close button (red cross) when finished.
You may edit the message at any time, by selecting the drug in this screen
pressing Save Message to
overwrite any previous.
If there is no message assigned to a drug in the list, it will simply not
display the message at all, i.e. it
will not display a blank message prompt when prescribing.
Use the right mouse menu and select Exit or press Ctrl+Esc.
You may create a shortcut on your desktop from the right mouse menu or if you manage your own practice server you may add this program to your Windows profile Startup folder, which would then start the program automatically when you login to your computer.
You can also add the program to the Vision local guideline index, which would make the program available to everybody, but they would need to click this button to start the program.
