Genie Version 9.3.7 dated 11/09/2020 is now available for download. This version addresses an issue impacting prescriptions in Genie Version 9.3.6 (19th & 20th May 2020) and Genie Versions 9.3.7 (19th August and 1st September 2020) as reported in this announcement.
As we are unable to automatically identify affected prescriptions, if you believe you are an impacted customer (i.e you have issued a prescription after opening the demographic window), the updated Genie version contains a reporting tool to support you in assessing if any incorrect prescriptions have been made during this time period
The report will reflect the script that was printed and is recorded in the Genie database. There is no way of determining what the INTENDED script was supposed to be if there has been an error, other than the use of clinical judgement by the practitioner that issued the script. We advise that practitioners review this report as a matter of urgency and validate if the prescription printed matches the intention.
To run the report, click on the File menu in Genie and choose Execute Command. Please note, you will require the appropriate level of security to access the Execute Command function.
In the command field, enter SCR_RunReport
The default report will include all prescriptions printed at your practice from 19th May 2020 (Genie v9.3.6 release date), until the date you have applied the fixed Genie Version 9.3.7 11/09/2020 or later.
If your practice updated to Genie Version 9.3.6, or earlier versions of 9.3.7 after the 19th May 2020, please enter this date when running the report in the format dd/mm/yyyy, and the report will be adjusted to the time period that prescriptions may have been impacted for your practice.
This report may take some time to render due to the quantity of data Genie processes whilst generating the report. Once generated, the report will launch in a browser external to the Genie application.
The report will include all prescriptions printed at your practice for the date range entered. It contains the following details:
- Patient name, Gender, and Age of patients so that you can prioritise paediatric, geriatric and women of childbearing age in your review of scripts if required.
- Schedule information to identify drugs within specific schedules e.g Schedule 8 can be easily identified.
- Prescribed Dose, Frequency and Instructions because it is possible that a previous script for the same drug has been substituted that may only differ on these parameters.
- Drug name, Strength, Form and Quantity.
We have also included the practitioner that printed the prescription in the “Creator” column. If the prescription was batched for printing later, it will include the user that Batched the prescription in the “Batched by” column.
If additional sorting of the information provided in the report is required, the table in the report can be highlighted in full and copied to an Excel document for this purpose.
