Pharmacy Daily - - News -

A RE­MINDER that Med­sASSIST will be dis­con­tin­ued na­tion­ally from 10 pm Aus­tralian Eastern Day­light Time, to­mor­row Wed­nes­day 31 Jan­uary.

All of the medicines recorded in the Med­sASSIST sys­tem will shift to pre­scrip­tion only from 01 Feb, and the sys­tem will be­come re­dun­dant at that time.

The Med­sASSIST clin­i­cal de­ci­sion sup­port tool has recorded over 11 mil­lion trans­ac­tions since it was in­tro­duced in Mar 2016.

The num­ber of phar­ma­cies vol­un­tar­ily us­ing Med­sASSIST peaked at around 70%.

The Guild thanks the thou­sands of phar­ma­cies that have used Med­sASSIST so ef­fec­tively since its in­tro­duc­tion.

The fo­cus now will be on as­sist­ing pa­tients through the tran­si­tion, and urg­ing the swift in­tro­duc­tion of real-time record­ing for pre­scrip­tion medicines.
