Dosage information is available in eChart, but it is incomplete. Especially in some forms, like suspensions or other pharmaceutical compounds, the amount dispensed can only be estimated, not confirmed (see example below).
To gather complete dosage information, the original provider and/or source pharmacy must be contacted (whether the user is using DPIN or eChart); see the Prescriber and Facility fields for contact names.
Dosage details available in eChart:
- Duration – days ordered
- Dispense – quantity dispensed
Note: Some limited dosage information may be inferred from the Days “Duration” and the Quantity “Dispensed” fields. For example, the total quantity of tablets per day (e.g. 1 tablet per day) may be inferred using the Days/Duration field (e.g. 50 days) and the Quantity/Dispensed field (e.g. 50). However, the details about frequency and quantity per time of day within each 24 hour period are not available, so the dosage details still need to be validated with the ordering provider and/or dispensing pharmacy.
