Stored Text can be used to facilitate the entry of complex instructions, such as reducing the dose of steroids for asthma, Colchicine for acute Gout, Chloroquin or Doxycycline for Malaria prophylaxis, HRT and so on. Such text is saved in the Clinical Glossary with a distinctive code name and can be retrieved later during the prescribing process.

o Save text to the Clinical Glossary.
