Electronic prescribing will provide an option for patients to receive an Electronic Prescription as an alternative to a paper-based prescription.
All prescribing medical practitioners can register to use eRx, the registration will be provided to MediRecords, to allow activation and set up of the eRx ID:
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.
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.
