GPs asked to wait for pharmacy readiness before issuing eScripts

General practices located outside the electronic prescribing communities of interest regions are being asked to wait until pharmacies in their region are able to accept eScripts before issuing them.

The Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) has asked GP software vendors to suspend access to ePrescribing functionality in their systems while a plan is worked out to scale the new capability nationally, saying there have been several cases where a consumer has been unable to have their medicine dispensed at their pharmacy of choice.
