ePrescribing in Medilink Clinical is facilitated by eRx Script Exchange.
eRx Script Exchange provides a secure and safe transmission of prescription information between doctors and pharmacists.
The first step in accessing ePrescription is to Register with eRx - https://www.erx.com.au/register-now/
In order to access eRx you may need to preform a Medilink Update and will need to contact Medilink in order to set up eRx.
Once approved by eRx you will be provided an EntityID for prescriptions.
To use eRx make sure the eRx option is selected, in DHR go to File >> Settings >> Use eRx Script Exchange
With this option selected, when you go to prescribe medications there will be an option to enter you EntityID, you should only need to enter this once as it will be saved and used automatically for future prescriptions. Click 'Add' to save the EntityID.
Note: It is advised that when you start using eRx that you create new prescriptions for patients (rather than using the repeat option or a saved favorite) this will allow you to take full advantage of the new module. Any older favorited scripts will need to be quickly reviewed before being prescribed, this only needs to be done once per script and most information will be undated automatically for you to review.
Any scripts sent to eRx will be show up in the summary screen in green.
