MediSecure Prescription Exchange Service Now Available in Bp Premier

07 July 2021

MEDIA RELEASE

Best Practice Software and MediSecure are pleased to announce that medical providers using Bp Premier practice management software are now able to select MediSecure’s prescription exchange service (PES) for transmitting ePrescriptions (accessed via a token) following a software update on June 9, 2021.

Best Practice Software’s latest update, Saffron Service Pack 1 (SP1), included support for digital token-based ePrescriptions to be sent via the MediSecure prescription exchange.

Medical practices have been utilising MediSecure to securely send electronic prescriptions between GP and pharmacy for some time now; with this latest update, Practices can choose between Australia’s two prescription exchange services for transmitting all electronic prescriptions between GP and pharmacy, be it barcoded paper script or token-based digital ePrescription.

Dr Frank Pyefinch, CEO and Founder said, “Best Practice Software has always understood that choice is important to our customers, and we are pleased to support our many users who choose MediSecure as their preferred prescription exchange provider”.

Dr Pyefinch explained that the sudden urgency to accelerate the rollout of ePrescribing in response to the COVID-19 crisis meant that Best Practice Software could not implement ePrescribing across both prescription exchanges simultaneously.

Paul Frosdick, Chief Executive Officer at MediSecure, said he was delighted to see the update reach all Bp Premier users.

“A significant number of our GP customers wanted to wait for Saffron Service Pack 1 before moving to ePrescriptions,” he said.

“Our users value the fact that we are Australia’s only independently owned prescription exchange, and we know that they appreciate the responsiveness of our service team. But perhaps most significantly, with the increasing fluidity of individual GPs working across multiple practices, our users love the fact that the prescriber set up on MediSecure is a two-click process managed at practice level”.

Since going live on June 9, over 160 Bp Premier MediSecure GP practices have activated ePrescribing and are issuing digital prescriptions to their patients.

“This is a fantastic result, and we will be working closely with our colleagues at Best Practice Software to maintain this rate of uptake over the coming weeks”, said Mr Frosdick.
