Send A Script to collaborate with MediSecure

Electronic prescription exchange service MediSecure has formed a collaboration with the developers of the Send a Script mobile pharmacy app.

While it is not a formal partnership, both companies will promote each other's products, with Send a Script featuring the collaboration on its app and MediSecure to work on branding on the paper scripts issued to patients by GPs.

Send a Script founder Fabian McCann said the collaboration was designed to increase each company's reach and resources to customers and other IT groups looking for a point of difference.

Send a Script has recently added functionality to enable the barcodes or QR codes printed on scripts to be scanned and sent to the pharmacist through the app.

It was originally launched just with the ability to take a photo of the script, but Mr McCann has recently embedded functionality from RedLaser to the product.

RedLaser, which was bought by eBay in 2010, allows users to scan in any barcode or QR code and is used by many retailers to comparison shop.

“Patients can use it to scan in any barcode from a prescription and it is international,” Mr McCann said. “We can combine with anyone really and scan in anything.

“A barcode is just a form of encryption, so any product that has been registered on the TGA will be scanned.”
