From 1st of February 2021, most medications in the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) and Repatriation PBS (RPBS) scheme must be prescribed by their active ingredients rather than their brand name.
We are pleased to announce that we were ready with a comprehensive update to the Medical Wizard prescription writing screen to facilitate this, before the February 1st deadline.
As part of the major infrastructure enhancement project we undertook to integrate My Health Record functionality with Medical Wizard, we have enabled our day hospital clients to produce Electronic Discharge Summaries.
EDS can be uploaded to the patient's My Health Record and shared between the hospital and other health care professionals.
EDS minimises errors that can result from scanning or faxing paper-based discharge summaries.
Very soon, ability to upload Electronic Discharge Summaries will be a mandatory criteria for Day Hospital accreditation. Therefore this new facility in Medical Wizard will become very important for all our Day Surgery clients.
We are pleased to announce that we received My Health Record integration accreditation in December 2020. This integration was the result of over a year of research and development by our Medical Wizard development team.
The all new My Health Record integration within Medical Wizard enables specialists to effortlessly and efficiently download / upload MHR related documents and views for their current patients.
The speed and the seamless nature of our integration of My Health Record functionality into Medical Wizard was recognised and acknowledged by the senior executives of the Australian Digital Health Agency.
Did you know we have over 250 new knowledge base articles in our Medical Wizard support portal? We are regularly adding/updating articles to reflect the latest changes in our software. First time users simply need to register with a nominated email address.
No more paper-based prescriptions. With Medical Wizard's ePrescription functionality, doctors can send totally paperless prescriptions to the patients via email or SMS.
We are now in the accreditation testing phase of this project and very close to announcing general availability of this feature as soon as we receive formal approval from the ADHA.
