How Can I Enter a New Medication to the Inventory?
To enter a new medication, you must first know the NDC. Click the plus sign icon in the upper right hand corner of the “Inventory” section, and enter the NDC. Once you’ve done so, the details will auto completed for you, assuming it’s already in Atlas.md’s NDC database.
From there, you’ll need to provide the remaining required information, including quantity, total price paid, the price markup, cost per pill, price per pill, lot number, expiration date, and what the medication is generic for, if applicable.
Based on the amount you enter in the total price paid field, Atlas.md will automatically calculate the cost and price per pill – also accounting for the price markup value you’ve entered.
The lot number and expiration date fields are required in order to add the medication to your inventory. This is imperative for prescribing and dispensing purposes. Read more on that here.
What if the NDC doesn’t auto complete for me?
If you enter an NDC, and Atlas.md doesn’t autocomplete the details for you, it could mean one of a few things. First, please check to make sure you’re entering the NDC correctly. Second, please make sure the NDC you’re entering is up to date. As you know, this information is extensive, and updated frequently. Atlas.md does its best to keep up to date, but it’s possible the database is incomplete still. This is the third option. As the database is continually evolving, Atlas.md evolves as well. In the rare instance you need a medication the system doesn’t have yet, please contact us at email@example.com; we’re happy to help.
