Is your pharmacy eHealth ready?

 

  • ePrescribing will soon be rolled out nationally.
  • From April 2020 it will be mandatory for Victorian pharmacies to check SafeScript when dispensing a prescription for a monitored drug.

 

 


 

To prepare for these changes

 

  1. Ensure that your pharmacy is connected to a Prescription Exchange Service (PES) such as eRx Script Exchange or MediSecure.
  2. Ensure that all staff scan the PES barcode on the script rather than enter information manually. Scanning PES barcodes is crucial as this data will form the base infrastructure for ePrescribing.
  3. Notify eRx or MediSecure of doctors in your area that do not use a Prescription Exchange Service (i.e. no barcode is printed on the script).

 

For eRx:  Please click this link and provide their details and eRx will contact the practice directly.

 

For MediSecure: Please click this link and provide the practice name and phone number and MediSecure will contact the practice directly. 

​If you experience technical issues with your scanners, please contact your hardware vendor for assistance.
