What is an ePrescription?

When a patient visits their doctor they now have the option to receive their prescription as a traditional paper prescription or an electronic prescription (ePrescription). The ePrescription is transmitted to the prescription exchange (eRx or Medisecure) where the patient controls which pharmacy can access it.

The patient can choose to receive their ePrescription as a Token via SMS, email or paper printout for each item prescribed, or they will be able to register for a MySL active script list.
