Electronic prescribing - using ASL in general practice

On-demand recorded 5 May 2022

Electronic prescribing is now widely available and used across Australia. The Active Script List (ASL) is a new functionality to help patients manage their electronic prescriptions and is anticipated to be available to most people across Australia in 2022.

In this session, delivered in partnership with the Australian Digital Health Agency, we discuss how the ASL works, how patients sign up, how GPs view the ASL, how GPs stop medicines going to the ASL and we also answer your questions.

This session is part of the Digital health live Q&A series running across May.
