Event Details

The majority of Australians now have the choice of an electronic prescription instead of a paper prescription. Over 3.5 million electronic prescriptions and repeat prescriptions have already been generated by prescribers and dispensers across Australia.

In February 2021, the first ever pharmacies began testing the Active Script List (ASL). The ASL is a list of all active prescriptions and repeats available to be dispensed. For those patients who want to use an ASL, this will in future remove the need to retain their electronic prescription tokens. Availability of ASL across community pharmacy will increase from April, and improved ASL functionality through consumer applications will progress over 2021.

Join the Australian Digital Health Agency at this webinar to learn more about the roll-out of the Active Script List and what you need to know to assist your patients’ access to their medicines via the ASL. During this session, we will explain how patients can register for an ASL at their community pharmacy and how general practices can add electronic prescriptions to the ASL. We will explain how the ASL fits in with other electronic prescription management options available to patients so that you can easily assist them with any queries during your consultations. All registrants will be provided with instructions for how to access supporting resource materials to communicate this new functionality to your patients.

This webinar is open to all general practice staff members.
