Tracking/tallying of prescriptions written with linkage to encounters is the essence of the first Core Measure of MU1; otherwise OpenEMR would never have been certified in 2011. The user is unaware of it, because it occurs in the background.
Most of my colleagues, as they go about recording the H & P, usually enter the name of the med, route & frequency in the Present Medications section of the History; rather than a reproduction of the script with Disp & Sig.
It is not necessary to be a programmer to create a Layout Based Visit form, but the user must thoroughly understand the process. There are 3 Wiki articles on the topic.
Rod Roark, the author of the LBV form, has added new features in 4.2.0. The Source attribute, described here may be helpful associating prescriptions & encounters.
