QUICK TIPS (--THIS SECTION DOES NOT PRINT--) This PowerPoint template requires basic PowerPoint (version 2007 or newer) skills. Below is a list of commonly asked questions specific to this template. If you are using an older version of PowerPoint some template features may not work properly. Using the template Verifying the quality of your graphics Go to the VIEW menu and click on ZOOM to set your preferred magnification. This template is at 50% the size of the final poster. All text and graphics will be printed at 200% their size. To see what your poster will look like when printed, set the zoom to 200% and evaluate the quality of all your graphics before you submit your poster for printing. Using the placeholders To add text to this template click inside a placeholder and type in or paste your text. To move a placeholder, click on it once (to select it), place your cursor on its frame and your cursor will change to this symbol: Then, click once and drag it to its new location where you can resize it as needed. Additional placeholders can be found on the left side of this template. Modifying the layout This template has four different column layouts. Right-click your mouse on the background and click on “Layout” to see the layout options. The columns in the provided layouts are fixed and cannot be moved but advanced users can modify any layout by going to VIEW and then SLIDE MASTER. Importing text and graphics from external sources TEXT: Paste or type your text into a pre-existing placeholder or drag in a new placeholder from the left side of the template. Move it anywhere as needed. PHOTOS: Drag in a picture placeholder, size it first, click in it and insert a photo from the menu. TABLES: You can copy and paste a table from an external document onto this poster template. To make the text fit better in the cells of an imported table, right-click on the table, click FORMAT SHAPE then click on TEXT BOX and change the INTERNAL MARGIN values to 0.25 Modifying the color scheme To change the color scheme of this template go to the “Design” menu and click on “Colors”. You can choose from the provide color combinations or you can create your own. © 2011 PosterPresentations.com 2117 Fourth Street, Unit C Berkeley CA Student discounts are available on our Facebook page.

Describe the medication conversion process at VHSO Generate and manipulate a patient list for medication conversion Use a Macro in CRT (the program used to access VISTA) to automatically load patients for conversion Create and Apply a Keyboard Map in CRT for Conversion As drug patents expire and national shortages continue to rise, more and more facilities are relying on pharmacies to take quick, decisive action in terms of therapeutic substitution and conversion. Normally, this is performed through a tedious process in which patients are manually selected and medication orders are converted by editing specific fields one at a time. At Veterans Health System of the Ozarks (VHSO), we developed a MACRO and KEYBOARD MAPPING system which streamlines and speeds up the conversion process. Step 1: Patients with specific medications, strengths and frequencies are sorted accordingly and stored in a specific “Patient List” file. Step 2: The MACRO will automatically select the next patient in the “Patient List” file. This removes the need for manual patient selection and drastically decreases wasted time. Step 3: Medication orders can be quickly and safely converted by using KEYBOARD MAPPING. KEYBOARD MAPPING reduces the number of keystrokes (and therefore time) by assigning a specific sequence of keystrokes to another key located on the keyboard. Step 2: “READ_LOOP” MACRO in VISTA REDUCED CONVERSION TIME Creating MACRO for patient specific, automated processing Reducing keystrokes using KEYBOARD MAPPING Example 1: KCl 8mEq Conversion, 2 KEYS were mapped to 134 keystrokes! Example 2: Warfarin generic conversion, 1500 patients were SAFELY converted in 20 hours! (~75pts/hour!) ABILITY TO DOCUMENT CONVERSION IN CPRS Viewing release date in “DETAILS” of order Editing Remarks field in medication order ABILITY TO EDUCATE PATIENT Standard comment mapped into every conversion, e.g. “NOTICE: NEW DIRECTIONS AND STRENGTH” Acquire all medications with status of Active/Suspense/Hold Patient list should include: Patient SSN (import as text to prevent leading zeros in SSN from being truncated) Patient name Directions Quantity Days supply Last fill date Prescribing provider Import SSNs as TEXT(preferred) or using Rx numbers (using ‘#’ sign plus Rx number) Sort patient list as required (e.g., based on med strength, refills remaining, etc.) Create a text document of SSNs using Microsoft notepad (Also Edit the MACRO to location and name text document, save to a shared drive ) (S:\NAME OF FOLDER HERE\NAME OF FILE.txt) Example Notepad SSN list. KEYBOARD MAP OPTIONS Edit orderable item: discontinuing and converting simultaneously Copy function: ability to leave directions the same Other considerations: Number of characters in patient instructions field Medication drug-drug interactions Field numbers (change based on type of map and steps) Edit remarks section to place conversion in CPRS Changing default Written to Policy or Service Correction Determined by Macro list (refills remaining) PAGE UP KEY (KEYSTROKE#2): RESULTS COPY FUNCTION DIRECTING MACRO TO PATIENT LIST FILE EG: CREATING A KEYBOARD MAP After entering the keystrokes, select the desired function key to execute the keyboard map and click “Map” EDIT ORDERABLE ITEM After selecting POTASSIUM CHLORIDE 8MEQ SA TAB, this screen appears. F10 KEY (KEYSTROKE#1): EXECUTION F10 KEY (KEYSTROKE#1): RESULTS Note the changes. Select the F10 key. Notice New Directions, Strength, and Quantity
