    Generic Medication names on reports

    It would be a nice option to be able to have the Medication Summary print not only the Brand drug name but also then the generic name. I like to enter exactly what I am prescribed and taking but having the generic name available is helpful when traveling, especially outside the country. We lost some medication in Paris and the hotel worked with us to find a doctor to replace it, but I had to spend time on a computer to find the generic name for the US brand names for the local doctor/pharmacy to use.

    Re: Generic Medication names on reports

    Thank you for this suggestion.

    Because this report is currently implemented as an OpenHealth service (external plugin report) - it cannot access the HealthFrameWorks reference content database which contains that mapping of brand names to generic names.

    We've added a bug report to track this request and will likely create a new (builtin) report which contains this generic drug information as well. Because of our current HealthFrame v3 release process - and because this change doesn't require data changes, it will probably NOT be part of the initial HealthFrame v3 release, but hopefully not too long after.
