A convenient alternative to paper prescriptions
What is an electronic prescription?
An electronic prescription is a digitally generated prescription that is sent to you via SMS or email by your health care provider. When visiting an authorised prescriber, you may be given the option to choose an electronic prescription.
To access your medications, you will need to present your SMS or email to the pharmacy. The pharmacy will then scan the QR code attached to unlock your prescription and dispense it as per normal.
If you have repeats, a new SMS or email will be sent to you when you get your medicine from the pharmacy.
What are the benefits?
All medicines can be prescribed using an electronic prescription. The message containing the link to your electronic prescription is stored on your digital device, so you can access it whenever you’re ready – saving you time, streamlining the process and improving medicine safety.
