Summit primarily operates as a self contained environment, with information from prescribing interacting with mixing, and injections using information from both the prescribing and mixing processes to create a seamless workflow. As such, Summit is primarily designed for prescriptions that were mixed within Summit. For specialty situations however, you are able to create an order and print labels for prescription that was not mixed within Summit. This is handled by the uncompounded RXs feature and information for using that feature will be covered here.

The process of creating an uncompounded RX begins the same as a standard order entry. From the patient's chart use either the order quick button or use the user menu to access the order entry screen. Here, instead of click on the <add> button as you would in a standard order, click on the source dropdown and change the source from local mixing to uncompounded RXs.

Here, you'll be able to enter information about the uncompounded prescription. Because the prescription was not mixed within Summit, there is more manual entry of data than normal. The required fields of treatment set name, vial size, and vial information are highlighted in red. You can also set a treatment plan for the prescription, set the physical location of the vials for the prescription, add general notes about the prescription, as well as verify that the clinic and provider information are correct.

There are two options for entering vial information for the uncompounded prescription. You can either use the add button to enter vials manually, or you can choose to load the vial information from from an existing prescribing profile. Which option will work best for you will greatly depend on your specific use case, but the end result is the same. 

To load vial information from an existing profile, simply choose the desired profile from the dropdown menu, as shown above. The outdate information for the vials is also brought over from the profile and you can use the set mix date button to change when the vials were mixed, it will otherwise default to the current date. Once you've loaded the vial information, you can make changes to individual vials or remove vials by highlighting the desired vial and clicking either edit or delete. The process for editing a vial is almost identical to adding vial information manually which will be covered next.

If there isn't an existing profile that you wish to use for this uncompounded prescription, or if you need to add an additional vial to a profile you've selected, you can add vials in manually by clicking the add button. This will bring up a popup window that will let you add information for vials one by one. Here you can select a vial color, a number for the vial and a suffix if needed, the vial's dilution and volume, and the outdate information for the vial. Once you've entered and verified all the information for the vial, click save to add the vail and repeat as many times as necessary.

Regardless of which method, or combination of methods, you use to enter the vial information for the uncompounded prescription once you've verified that all the information is correct, click save to finalize the prescription. Once saved, you can click the print labels button to print labels for the vials. This brings up the standard label printing window and the process for printing labels is the same as with a standard prescription.

The uncompounded prescription is now completed and ready to be used in treatment. For any additional questions, please refer to our other support articles or contact Xtract support via Freshdesk ticket or email.
