Electronic prescribing: supporting safe medication management

On-demand recorded 10 May 2023

More than 88 million electronic prescriptions have been issued since May 2020, by more than 48,000 prescribers (Oct 2022). Electronic prescriptions are a secure and convenient alternative to paper prescriptions and are especially useful when providing services via a telehealth consultation.

Delivered in collaboration with the Australian Digital Health Agency, this webinar will provide an update on the rollout of electronic prescribing functionality across Australia. We will discuss some tips to share with patients who are finding it challenging to manage electronic prescription tokens when taking multiple medicines, introduce you to the Active Script List and discuss the developments in electronic prescribing for the aged care sector.

This session is part of the Practice Essentials Webinar Series 2023.

Learning outcomes

  1. Describe potential benefits of electronic prescribing
  2. Implement electronic prescribing in the practice
  3. Issue an electronic prescription token directly to the patient, add it to the patient’s Active Script List, or both
  4. Provide education to patients on options for managing their electronic prescription, particularly if taking multiple medications.
