How to configure Open Dental and EASy to print Grouped Prescriptions
Grouped prescriptions are available in EASy version 15.1.x and later. Grouped prescriptions allow you to conveniently print up to 4 prescriptions on a single sheet of paper.
To begin using Grouped prescriptions, it will be necessary to import some custom Rx sheets into Open Dental. From the Open Dental main menu, select Setup > Sheets. This will open the sheets window. If you don't already have a custom Rx sheet showing in the pane on the right, click on the 'Rx' sheet on the left, then click 'Copy. This custom sheet will handle single prescriptions that you still may want to print in Open Dental as you have always done.
In order to have Grouped Prescriptions function properly, you will need to have templates for 2, 3 and 4 prescriptions. To import these, Click 'Import', then import the 3 sheets named Rx2, Rx3 and Rx4. These are located in a folder name 'Anesth Custom Rx Sheets' in the same program folder as Open Dental. When you are done, your Sheets setup screen should look something like this:
Next, open up the Anesthesia Preferences window by clicking on the Anesthesia > Preferences menu item. Click on the 'System' tab to launch the following window:
This will launch the following window. Select up to 4 prescriptions to add to a prescription group and click 'Add'
Next, give this Rx group a unique name.
If everything has been configured properly, the grouped prescriptions should print on a single sheet of paper.
