Electronic prescriptions now available

August 11, 2020

Prescribers and patients in Queensland now have the option to use an electronic prescription as an alternative to a paper-based prescription

Prescribers can now create an electronic prescription using prescribing software which must have a conformance ID on the Australian Digital Health Agency’s Electronic Prescriptions Register of Conformance.

Prescribers attending residents in Aged Care facilities that are taking part in the Electronic National Residential Medication Chart Trial will also be able to use the trial software to prepare lawful electronic prescriptions that may be dispensed by pharmacists as part of the trial.

Additional information on the requirements for electronic prescriptions is detailed in the factsheet – Electronic prescriptions for health professionals.
