Mobile App & Animal Refills

When a new patient is added, the date of birth (DOB) field in the app always defaults to 1/1/2000 (unless modified by the patient/owner). If unchanged, 1/1/2000 will then be used as the DOB to validate the script with PK Software.

If the DOB for the pet also states 1/1/2000 in PK Software, then a script sent by the app will be entered into PK Software (assuming the rx number is valid).

PK Software & Animal Refills

A new option and a new patient utility have been added to PK Software to support a default DOB for veterinary refills.

On tab 7 in the system preferences, the user can select an option to enter a default DOB into a patient profile whenever the species does not contain the word ‘HUMAN.’ This option can be enabled or disabled using the checkbox. By default, the option will be disabled.

If you wish to use this process, then the Default DOB for non-HUMAN species should be set to a date and the option Enabled. Note, any default date can be chosen in PK Software, but 1/1/2000 is recommended because it is the same as the app default DOB.
