This article will cover how to set up eRx (for e-prescribing) in MediRecords for the first time.
To setup eRx, you will need to:
- Connect to the Health Identifiers Service
- Register yourself on the eRx website
1. Connect to the Health Identifiers Service
*NOTE: If you are already accessing My Health Record in MediRecords, then you can skip this step. The HPI-O and NASH certificates would have already been configured at the time My Health Record was set up.

2. eRx Registration
Before you can set up eRx in MediRecords, you will need to register yourself for e-prescribing on the eRx website.
To register, go to www.erx.com.au and click Register NOW in the right-hand corner of the page.
Where it says I am a Medical Practitioner click, Register.
Prescriber Registration Step 1 - Minimum Requirements. You will need to meet all of the minimum requirements in order to proceed. Tick all boxes and click Next.
When completing the form, remember to select MediRecords as your clinical software provider.
Once you have completed and submitted your registration form, please allow 1 to 3 days for eRx to process the application.
When the application has been approved, you will be emailed your eRx ID and other necessary information used in the setup.
3. Adding the eRx Identification Number
The eRx ID needs to be added to your profile in MediRecords, in the Identifiers section of the User Settings.
To open User Settings, click More at the top of the page to reveal a drop-down list, and then click Settings.
Click Subscription Settings.
Click the Name of the User.
Click ERX ID and type in the eRx number (which eRx will provide to you).
Click Save to apply the changes.
You are now configured for eRx.
