ePrescribing with Audit4
Audit4 v19.2.0 and above supports sending electronic prescriptions (ePrescribing) within Australia. After prescribing a medication in Audit4, the print/send process allows clinicians to send a script token to their patient either via SMS or via email. This token includes a QR code that can be scanned at the pharmacy to retrieve the electronic script.
Getting Ready for ePrescribing
Register for the My Health Record / Healthcare Identifiers Service
Audit4 needs to be able to communicate with the Services Australia Healthcare Identifiers Service in order to send a script electronically. ePrescription tokens include patient Individual Healthcare Identifiers (IHIs) which are also used to identify patients in My Health Record. If you do not already have My Health Record in your Audit4, follow the registration guide on the following page.
For assistance with the registration process, the relevant contact details are located under the For Healthcare providers section on the Digital Health contact-us page:
Once your registration is complete, contact S4S Support to help you configure your Audit4 to connect to the My Health Record.
ePrescribing is facilitated through Audit4 integration with eRx Script Exchange. You will need to register with eRx via the following link:
Once eRx provides your registration details, contact S4S Support to help configure your Audit4.
Start Sending Electronically
Once you have completed the registrations above and Audit4 has been configured, your practice will be able to send paperless ePrescriptions to your patients. A training video for Audit4 Clinicians is provided within 4Learning, accessible via the Help menu in your Audit4.
