How to use Interactive Discharge Medication Lists

All M.D. users now have the ability to edit, add or remove medication information directly online in Web/VS.

Rather than printing out the discharge medication lists and editing them on paper, physicians will be able to update and save the final version online for later viewing and printing.

To access the Interactive Discharge Medication Lists:

  1. Log into Web/VS and select a patient in the usual way.
  2. Select the "Medication Lists" from either the "Recent Results" screen, or select the "Medications" category under the "Reports" drop-down menu.
  3. Click on the current "Inpatient Medication Lists."
  4. Click on the "Discharge Med List" button located at the bottom of the medication list.
  5. The "Discharge Medication List" will display.
  6. To edit, add or remove any information, click in the designated area, then type in the designated text.
  7. Select "Continue" or "Stop" on each medication on the list whether any updates were made or not.
  8. Once the medication list has been updated, you can choose to "Update," "Print and Save" or "Revert."

Note: The "Update" button will display the new medications and remove the stopped medications. The "Print and Save" button will display the edited discharge medication list in a printable format. The "Revert" button causes all editing changes to be discarded.

For questions, comments or suggestions, please contact the Web/VS Support Team at (310) 423-2828 or via e-mail at mdsupport@cshs.org. You can also click on the "Contact Us" button in Web/VS (located in the blue shaded area on the bottom left side of the screen).
