Generate Prescription Rx Order PDF on OpenEMR

Hi Everyone! I’ve been demoing OpenEMR these past two weeks and I had a question about generating prescriptions. Is it possible to prepare an Rx prescription on a PDF that can then be faxed to a pharmacy?

I want to generate a PDF that has the patient’s, provider’s, and Rx information.
For example, it would be like:

Patient Name: John Doe
DOB: 05/15/1954
Address: 123 Main Street, New York City, NY 10036
Rx: Atorvastatin 10 mg daily by mouth

Prescriber’s Name: Daniel Smith, MD
Prescriber Address: …
License Number: …
DEA: …
NPI: …
TEL: …
FAX: …

Is this possible on OpenEMR? I believe I saw an option under Administration --> Global --> Rx that specified the settings for generating Rx PDFs, but I don’t know where to generate them. Could someone please help me?

Thank you and I appreciate your assistance.

Hi @HealthcareInterLLC , OpenEMR did not have prescription available but you can buy third party module like NewCrop and then you need customize the fax functionality in OpenEMR for e-prescription.


There’s a zend module rx print thread.

You have to enable the module and then customize the file that’s referenced in the above link.

Thank you. I’ve enabled those options, but how can I print a prescription?

Add a script for a pt from the dashboard and you’ll find the print button

Awesome, it works now. Thank you so much!!

I can now use the option Print Four, but I do not see how to fill the 3 extra pages. I want to use 2 pages, one for the pharmacy and one for the patient.
