Real-Time Prescription Monitoring

Communicare can be configured so that whenever a controlled medicine is prescribed and the prescription is about to be saved, the information is validated against the real-time prescription monitoring service.

To use real-time prescription monitoring, ensure that the following criteria are met:
  • An HPI-O is selected for each Encounter Place where prescribing occurs.
  • All prescribing providers have a Provider Number entered against each Encounter Place.
Note: Real-Time Prescription Monitoring functionality is not available in the Offline Client.

Currently, Safescript is required only for Victoria. See the health.vic website for further details.
