Prescription written, dispensed and delivered without patient leaving home

A live trial of electronic prescribing in Melbourne has allowed a patient to be seen by his GP via telehealth, receive an electronic script token on his phone that he then forwarded to his pharmacy by text, and have his medication delivered to his home just hours later.

In what is one of the first trials of ePrescribing in primary care in Australia, Beaumaris resident Alf Frommer was offered a telehealth consultation this week by his GP, Kachig Malyan of Bluff Road Medical Centre in Sandringham.
