What is e-Prescribing?
E-Prescribing replaces the need for paper prescriptions by enabling prescribing and dispensing of medicines to be completed electronically.
The patient or their approved carer receives a token via SMS or email that can be passed to a pharmacy for dispensing. This paperless system helps preserve patient privacy and safety and reduces the risk of medication errors that can be caused by handwritten scripts.
MediRecords provides e-prescribing to the Victorian Virtual Emergency Department, telemedicine clinics, specialists, and GPs across Australia. We are integrated with SafeScript in NSW and Victoria, and QScript in Queensland.
e-Prescribing brings numerous benefits including:
“E-prescribing has been welcomed by everyone. Without manual transcription from paper script to pharmacy system, there is less risk of error in dispensing the medications, ensuring our patients get the right medicine, in the right strength and dosing.”
Dr. Peter Vanrietvelde – Cairns West Medical Centre
Electronic prescribing is a step toward a safer and more efficient health system and allows clinicians and pharmacists to spend more time focused on patient care.
