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.
