Electronic Prescription Pilot

Selected outpatient clinics at Royal Perth Hospital are now offering electronic prescriptions.

They are a new type of prescription. Electronic prescriptions enable the prescribing and dispensing of medicines without the need for a physical paper prescription. They are an alternative option to receiving paper prescriptions.

Initially some outpatient clinics will offer this service (Haematology, Immunology, Gastroenterology & Liver Service and Pain Management services). Further clinics will offer electronic prescriptions in the coming months.
