QuickSCRIP offers the ability to integrate with QuickMAR Long Term Care Facility software. We transmit relevant scrip information over your network to the QuickMAR system, which then generates MARs for your nursing homes.

Please note that QuickMAR integration is something that must be enabled in your system by a Cost Effective Computers representative, and that there is an integration fee for this feature.

MAR Commands

In addition to transmitting prescription information to QuickMAR, you will also need to specify dose patterns and quantities so QuickMAR can generate thier forms. The following commands can be entered in the SIG lines in the RXFILL or EDIT screens:

/QDOSE= sets the dose pattern. This command tells QuickMAR how often the medication needs to be taken. Is there is no QDOSE command, then we assume the medication is taken daily.

  • QOD - Every other Day
  • QnD - Every n day, n being a numerical value
  • QnW - Every n weeks
  • QnM - Every n months
  • QMON, QTUE, ect - Weekly on a specified day
  • QWn - Weekly on a specified day, n being a numerical value (1 = Sunday, 2 = Monday, 3 = Tuesday, ect)
  • QMn,n,n - Monthly on a specified day(s). n = 1-28, and each additional day is tacked onto the end of the command with a comma
  • QWnnnnnnn - days of the week, Sunday - Saturday, n=0 excludes a day, n=1 includes a day.

Examples:

A medication that needs to be taken every 3 days would use this command in the SIGs.

/QDOSE=Q2D

A medication that neets to be taken only on Tuesdays would use this command in the SIGs.

/QDOSE=QTUE

or

/QDOSE=QW2

A medication that needs to be taken every Tuesday and Thursday would use this command in the SIGs.

/QDOSE=QW0010100 

/QTIME= sets the time of day for the medication to be administered. Times must be entered in military time, and multiple times of day need to be separated by a comma.

Examples:

A medication that needs to be taken at 8:00 a.m. would use this SIG command.

/QTIME=0800

A medication that needs to be taken at 8:00 a.m. and 05:00 p.m. would use this SIG command.

/QTIME=0800,1700

/QMQ= sets the quantity of medication to be given at each scheduled time.

/DC discontinues a claim in both QuickSCRIP and QuickMAR

/FLOOR=, /BED=, /ROOM= sets the floor number, bed number, and room numbers.

/ADM= admit Date and or time.
