Electronic Transfer of Prescriptions (ETP) supports the safe and secure transfer of prescription information between a prescriber (doctor, specialist, dentist, optometrist, nurse practitioner etc.) and a community pharmacy using an electronic system known as a Prescription Exchange Service (PES).
Electronic Prescribing and Dispensing (eScript) provides an option for prescribers and their patients to present a QR code eScript (via email or text message) as an alternative to a paper-based prescription.
As a prescriber it is a requirement of eScripts to have conformant software and be registered with a PES (see above).
To prepare for Electronic Prescribing your prescribing practice or pharmacy may need to register or renew a NASH certificate to access Healthcare Identifiers Service. A Electronic Prescribing checklist is available for Prescribers or Pharmacy.
There are a number of benefits to using ETP & eScripts including:
