Cerner med history functionality feedback requested

Looking for those that use Cerner that can provide any details as to how you manage sharing a medication history platform with your provider offices. This is in regards to the prescriptions that populate on the medication history (RX bottle icon) versus the scroll entries that are not actual prescriptions. We are seeing prescription entries hang out in the med history that patients are no longer taking. Our staff (nurses, medical assistants or pharmacy med rec techs) have been instructed NOT to discontinue those entries on the med history because they are actual prescriptions from a provider. Just interested in any processes that other Cerner sites might be doing to manage the med history platform. Do all of your providers own the piece of discontinuing any prescriptions if patient states they are no longer taking or not taking the medication the way it is prescribed even if the prescription was not written by them? Any feedback is appreciated!
