Simplifying Australia’s NRMC Prescribing Process with Electronic Systems

What are electronic prescribing systems?

Electronic prescribing systems or ‘e-prescribing’ is a way for Australian prescribers and medical practitioners to provide their patients with an electronic prescription rather than a paper-based one. This can help patients keep better track of their prescriptions in a more convenient manner and reduce the risk of transcribing errors. These factors can be particularly helpful in situations where hard copies of prescriptions may be misplaced or confused with outdated prescriptions or another person’s, such as in aged care facilities.

In combination with the specially developed National Resident Medication Chart (NRMC), electronic prescribing systems can help reduce the amount of administrative paperwork for prescribers, aged care staff, and pharmacists when providing medication to their patients.
