An Inpatient Medication Entry (IPME) is created to process Inpatient Medication Orders in bulk based on some filters and to optionally update stock on dispensing the drugs.
To access the Inpatient Medication Entry list, go to:
Home > Healthcare > Inpatient > Inpatient Medication Entry
Before creating an Inpatient Medication Entry, you need to create the following records first:
5. After setting the filters, click on the Get Pending Medication Orders button to fetch the pending orders which fall under the selected filters. 6. Optionally, check/uncheck Update Stock. If checked, specify the Warehouse from where drugs should be consumed.
The corresponding Inpatient Medication Order Entries are marked as completed.
If Update Stock is checked, then stock validations are made and orders are processed to make Stock Entry with references updated against each entry. You can check the references for Inpatient Medication Entry in the Stock Entry, and in Stock Entry Detail table for the Patient and corresponding Entry.
The corresponding Stock Entry is cancelled and the linked Inpatient Medication Order Entry is marked as incomplete again.
If Update Stock is checked, and the required quantity of drugs is not available for consumption in the selected warehouse, on submission, you will see a summary of all the drugs and the shortage quantity.
A Make Stock Entry button will be visible when the document is in the draft state and Update Stock is checked. On clicking this button, the system will check for drug shortage and create a new Stock Entry for Material Transfer by mapping all the drugs and the shortage quantity for each. The "To Warehouse" for this Stock Entry will be the Medication Warehouse that you have selected in the Inpatient Medication Entry. You can then set the "Source Warehouse", save, and submit the Stock Entry to proceed with the Medication Entry.
