Electronic prescribing update 2021

On-demand recorded 25 May 2021

Electronic prescribing is now available in most parts of Australia, with the majority of Australians now having the choice of an electronic prescription instead of a paper prescription.

This webinar provides an update on electronic prescribing and explains how electronic prescriptions can be managed via tokens and the Active Script List (ASL), a newer functionality that is now rolling out across Australia.
