ePrescribing now available in Hauora a Toi – Bay of Plenty
More convenience and less clerical work are the benefits of a new outpatient support service in Hauora a Toi - Bay of Plenty. ePrescribing is now available via a clinical portal for patients.
ePerscribing helps by providing better communication between perscribers and pharmacists, cutting down the need for ongoing contact with patients, giving a better overview of medications and treatment plans and can reduce risks, especially during dispensing of medication.
The shift to ePrescribing will help to reduce workloads for pharmacies, and it also prevents loss of prescriptions and supports rapid issuing of repeats which is great news for everyone.
