Safer patient care is only a click of a button away. More Victorians lose their lives from prescription medicines then on our roads each year - this is an opportunity for us to do something to make a real difference.
SafeScript, a Victorian Government initiative, is a new system to help health practitioners provide better care to patients on high-risk prescription medicines. It offers comprehensive information on the prescription history of a patient including helpful alerts to prompt clinical intervention when the patient may be at risk of harm.
It’s quick and easy to use and updated in real time allowing health practitioners to work together to better treat their patients. In conjunction with additional training focussed on improving clinical and counselling skills, SafeScript will help health practitioners to co-ordinate care and identify patients who may need additional support to manage their medicines.
Using SafeScript is easy and secure. After a once off registration which includes important security settings to protect patient health information, you will be able to log in and refer to a list of monitored medicines prescribed and dispensed to your patient.
As health practitioners, this is your opportunity to be at the forefront of change.
SafeScript is easy to use, safe & secure, but more importantly it will save lives.
