Resources for Monash Health Employees using telehealth.
Important information – COVID-19
Please read this prescribing advice from the Department of Health.
When emailing a digital image of a printed prescription to a pharmacy (Monash Health Pharmacy or a community pharmacy) use your Monash Health email address. The legislation (Public Health Emergency Order #4) that allows a pharmacist to dispense off a digital image of a prescription does not apply to Schedule 8 medicines and Schedule 4 drugs of dependence.
For all prescriptions that are transmitted digitally (emailed or faxed) to a pharmacy:
- Ensure that the patient’s telephone number is included on the prescription (in addition to usual identification details of name, address and date of birth)
- Document where you transmitted the prescription e.g. “Transmitted to X pharmacy under PHEO#4”
