Time called for the last time on image-based prescribing: DoH

The Australian Department of Health has reminded prescribers and dispensers for what it says is the final time that image-based prescribing will come to an end on December 31.

The temporary measure was introduced at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic to allow prescribers to send a photo or fax of a prescription to pharmacists without the need to post a paper copy.

The department has backtracked on the issue before but says it will definitely end in 2021. It has agreed to continue the SMS subsidy until June 30, 2022.
