New digital health innovations for prescriptions

Medicines and Pharmacy

There are some new digital innovations for scripts. They include:

  1. Electronic prescriptions (“e-script”)
  2. Real time prescription monitoring (RTPM)
  3. Active Ingredient prescribing

The changes aim to make it easier to keep track of medicines from a phone, tablet or computer.

They will help patients, pharmacies, doctors and the ACCHO health team make sure everyone gets the right medicine when needed.

You can use this information to educate your team and community.
