Set up Electronic Prescribing

IMPORTANT   The Australian Digital Health Agency is phasing out older versions of the Electronic Prescribing Conformance profile. To ensure that eScripts continue to work after 30 September 2024, your practice must have upgraded to Bp Premier version Orchid SP1 or later.

Switching on electronic prescribing for a practice is very simple. However, particularly for practices new to Bp Premier, some critical Bp Premier functions around communications and prescribing must be set up before providers can issue paper or electronic prescriptions.

If you have been using Bp Premier for some time, and have already set up a Prescription Exchange Service and Bp Comms, you can skip to Enable electronic prescribing in Configuration.
