The Patient Medication Summary Report provides a summarised list of all medications the selected patient has been dispensed since a defined date. The report condenses all the times the drug was dispensed to the patient and displays it as one entry. 

This is useful when the patient requires a snapshot of their medication list, for example, when performing a Home Medication Review, or when visiting a hospital or specialist.

To run the report:

From Dispense Pro:

1. Click the Reports menu, then 3. Customers and select 9. Patient Medication Summary.

a. Select the patient you wish to report for.

b. In the Drugs Dispensed Since field, enter the date you want to report from. All drugs dispensed after this date until the current date will be included in the report.

c. Select the Include Directions checkbox to include directions from the most recent supply.

d. Choose Drug name to sort the report by drug name alphabetically or Last dispensed date, to sort by date with the most recently dispensed item listed first.

2. Click OK to run the report.

The report will display.

a. Brand name of the dispensed item with the active ingredient following in brackets. If the drug has been dispensed to the patient multiple times using different brands, then the most recently dispensed brand name is displayed.

b. Quantity dispensed at the last dispensing.

c. Last time the medication was dispensed, i.e. the most recent dispense date

d. First time the medication was dispensed. Note: this is the first time in the patient’s medication history that the drug was supplied - this maybe prior to the date entered in the Drugs Dispensed Since field.

e. Number of times the drug was dispensed since the specified date entered in the Drugs Dispensed Since field.
