Pharmacy cyber security checks vital in preparing for electronic prescriptions

Fred IT Group has urged pharmacies to actively protect against cyber security risk as the sector prepares for the introduction of electronic prescriptions in Australia this year.

We have been looking forward to Australia’s move to electronic prescriptions for more than a decade to further strengthen medication safety, and provide added flexibility for pharmacies and their patients.
