Patient Registration

Yes, we have StrengthHEN registration tear off script pads available for when HCP’s are not close to their computers or the internet.  This will allow HCP’s to write up a HEN registration form at anytime and anywhere.  However, it is highly recommended that HCP’s create the registration and regimen in the StrengthHEN portal so that when the patient calls our EN Support team, their order is done quicker and the right pricing is applied to the patients’ order. 

Once you have selected a patient’s account information, there will be a button near the top right of their profile that says ‘Transfer Patient’. Once you click on this icon, a box will appear. Fill the information required, and the Fresenius Kabi administrators will notified of your request and transfer the patient to the required institute.

The patient transfer comes into effect once the Fresenius Kabi administrators have received the request from a HCP, and transfer the patient in the system to the designated institute. This can take up to one business day.

Yes – when a patient is transferred to a new institute, all their previous information will be transferred to the new HCP and institute.

If a patient sadly passes away, there will be an option to ‘Deactivate patient’ on their account page. This will mean that neither the HCP or Fresenius Kabi will be able to see them on patient list but can search for them in the search bar if required for patient records.

The Fresenius Kabi administrators will be given daily notifications if a patient’s name and date of birth are the same as another record purely for the purposes of checking for duplication. If a duplicate account has been created, the patients information will be merged. However, if the patients are different, a new account will remain for the other patient.

Regimen

On the patient print out all of the products flavours will be available to order once they contact Fresenius Kabi EN Customer Service. The only instance when this will not be the case is if the prescribing HCP has selected ‘no flavour substitution’ where only the flavours selected by the HCP will be allowed or ordering.

If the order is for patient to pay, the Fresenius Kabi customer service team will discuss the flavour options with the patient, before they process the patient to pay order.

Once the regimen has been created, a new pop-up will appear with green text that states that ‘regimen is active’.

If a regimen expires, or a new regimen is created for a patient, the preceding regimen will become ‘inactive’, and whenever you select on the old regimen, a new pop-up will appear with the text ‘regimen is inactive’

When creating a regimen for a patient, there will be a dropdown box with the option to select ‘once only’. Once you have selected the drop box with this option, it will display on the patient print out.

Once the regimen has been created, an icon will appear with the option to ‘Print Patient Regimen’. After you click on this button, a new window will appear with a PDF document contain all the patients order information. This print out will have a ‘print’ button to easily print the pdf to give to the patient.

Yes. Once you have a created a regimen, an ‘edit’ button will appear. This will clone the regimen that’s been created so that you can either delete or add new products to the regimen and make the appropriate clinical changes to the patients products.

Under an ‘inactive’ regimen, there will be an option to ‘edit’ the regimen. When you edit the regimen, it will recreate the previous regimen. The HCP can change the expiry date to extend the patients product regimen, and also add or delete any products required on their regimen.

Yes. When creating a regimen, one of the requirements is to put in an expiry date for the regimen. If no date is selected, the option will automatically prefill to a 12 month period.

Yes. Once the regimen has been created and is ‘active’, there is an option to ‘edit’ the regimen and the date of expiry can be changed to the required date for the patient.

There will be a menu option for ‘Expiring Regimens’. When a regimen has 60 days or less until expiry, it will appear in this menu list so that the HCP is aware of any expiring regimens.

Once a regimen expires, it will become inactive. If a HCP wants to create the same regimen again for the patient, they will need to go to the regimen details and click ‘edit’ to recreate the same regimen with a new expiry date.

As a HCP, if you wish to extend the regimen expiry beyond 12 months, when creating a regimen, click on the regimen expiry date and select your preferred expiry time for the patient’s regimen.

Yes, when you are creating or editing a regimen there is an option to edit the frequency of a regimen. The options are: Once Only, Weekly and Monthly.

Search

There will be two options to search for a patient in the StrengthHEN portal. On the home page there will be an option to search by a patients first name; surname and DOB. For this process, all the patients details will be required.

The second option will be the global search bar. The search bar is on every page of the portal near the top tool bar where a ‘microscope’ option appears. In the panel across this icon, a HCP can search for a patient using either their first name or surname

Yes. The global search bar allows for a user to search for products by entering the name of the product into the search bar.

Product ordering and purchase

Once the regimen has been created, the HCP can print the regimen out which will have all the regimen and order details on it. The patient then needs to complete the following steps:

  • Call Fresenius Kabi EN Support on 1800 930 9572.
  • Ask for the EN Coordinator
  • Provide the patient number provided on the form
  • Provide Payment Details

Once each regimen has been created, a patient print out will be generated which will contain the patients details; their health care professionals details; the products on their regimen; and ordering instruction. Under the ordering instruction will be a unique regimen code which is generated which will give Fresenius Kabi quick and easy access to their regimen details so they can process a patients order in a timely manner.

The Strength HEN tear off script pad is a registration form that HCP’s can take with them to a consult with a patient. The form will have the necessary space for the HCP to list the products recommended for use as well as details on how to place an order with our EN Support team.   However, it is highly recommended that HCP’s create the registration and regimen in the StrengthHEN portal so that when the patient calls our EN Support team, their order is done quicker and the right pricing is applied to the patients’ order.  To get your tear off script pad, please contact your Specialist Representative or call our EN support team 1800 930 9572
