This article will cover how to setup eRx (for e-prescribing) in MediRecords for the first time. To setup eRx, you will need to register yourself on the eRx website and add your HPI-O (Healthcare Organisation) certificate, and the certificate associated with the Health Identifier (HI) Service to your practice configuration settings.
Each of these steps will be covered individually in this article.
Before you can setup 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.
If you just registering yourself or a single doctor at the clinic, click I'm a Doctor, and complete the registration process.
If you are a practice owner or practice manager, registering multiple doctors' for eRx at once, click Doctor Registration Form.
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 setup.
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 ready to add your HPI-O and HI certificates to MediRecords.
Once you have added the eRx ID to the provider's profile, please send an email to the MediRecords Support Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org) to advice that it has been completed. eRx ID's need to be activated by MediRecords before they can used for e-prescribing in the MediRecords App (patient mobile app).
HPI-O and HI Certificates Overview
*NOTE: If you are already accessing My Health Record in MediRecords, then you can skip this step. The HPI-O and HI certificates would have already been configured at the time My Health Record was set up.
For a comprehensive guide on this, please consult the following article on connecting to the Health Identifiers service.
