The increasing harmful use of prescription medicines, such as opioids and benzodiazepines, is a major public health concern. The Victorian Government is taking action to reduce these harms by implementing SafeScript, a clinical tool that will provide information about a patient’s prescription history for certain high-risk medicines.
Victoria’s SafeScript is now live, and already making a difference in patient safety.
SafeScript provides doctors and pharmacists comprehensive information about the high-risk medicines patients are taking.
It is intuitive, secure, innovative and delivers real-time alerts so that patients at risk receive the best treatment and support.
SafeScript; keeping patients on the safe side.
