Continued Dispensing in Minfos

 

Using Minfos with Continued Dispensing

We have extended Minfos dispense data to include the new range of drugs available for Continued Dispensing.

 

To access the updated list of PBS items in Minfos, please follow the below steps:  

1. Refer to your State’s legislation to find out what items and quantities are available through the Continued Dispensing Program.

Note: There may be items marked as Continued Dispense in Minfos that are not available in your state to supply under this Program.

 

2. Perform a manual dispense update.

 

3. Ensure your Pharmacists are setup as ‘Prescribers’ in Prescriber Maintenance with their AHPRA number as the registration number.

 

4. Refer to our manual to dispense a Continued Dispensing supply.

 



 

Claiming authority items

We are currently working on updating our system to support PBS claiming of authority items. 

 

You are able to dispense and supply these items to the patient but you may receive a rejection from PBS Online. We will advise Minfos customers via email when they can resubmitted authority items claiming.

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.
