What is an ePrescription?

Whilst prescription information has been transmitted electronically via eRx Script Exchange for over a decade, the legal document has remained the signed piece of paper. An ePrescription changes this so that the legal document becomes the prescription data which resides in eRx (or MediSecure).

Whilst the patient remains in control of who can access their prescription, the signed piece of paper is no longer required. It’s important to remember that this new type of prescription will be an option for patients who may also elect to receive a paper prescription.
