PRESS RELEASE: Best Practice Software Takes Part in QLD’s First Electronic Prescription
Bargara, Queensland – Best Practice Software’s, William Durnford, has today taken part in Queensland’s first Electronic Prescription using ADHA’s fat tracked ePrescribing solution within Bp Premier. After completing a consultation with Grace Family Practice & Skin Care’s Dr. Preshy Varghese and receiving a token on his phone, Mr. Durnford then visited Pharmacist Campbell Gradon of Alliance Pharmacy in Bargara Central Shopping Centre in order to collect what was likely Queensland’s first eScript.
Since being introduced in Queensland on Saturday the 25th of July, patients around the state are now eligible to receive and collect prescriptions from participating Practices and pharmacies. This is especially important for Practices continuing to conduct telehealth consultations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Best Practice Software has now also released the Jade SP3 update for Bp Premier, which contains Electronic Prescribing functionality. Practices using Bp Premier will be able to take advantage of the fast-tracked functionality after satisfying a short list of simple pre-requisites.
For more information on Electronic Prescribing, visit the Australian Government Department of Health’s webpage on Electronic Prescribing.
