With the challenges pharmacies have had recently, it is sometimes hard to keep up with new rules and regulations surrounding ePrescribing. The Te Whatu Ora ePrescription Service webpage is a good source of information. Particularly relevant are the pages on:
- new rules for electronic prescriptions
- ePrescriptions for controlled drugs
- signature exempt prescriptions, and
- secure messaging

All these pages have documents that can be downloaded and printed, so they can be read and referred to when required.
The Toniq ePrescribing Manual (in C:\Program Files (x86)\Dispensary\Manuals on any computer which has Toniq installed) has information on processing ePrescriptions, and sections covering medicine selection and trouble shooting
