At Capital Chemist, we’re very
excited that e-scripts are arriving soon.
For our pharmacists, adopting this
technology means that we can accept and dispense prescriptions in a way that’s
timely, secure and efficient.
The real benefits, however, are for
you — our patients. Here’s why you should make the switch from traditional paper
scripts to e-scripts:
Better medication management
Until this point, prescriptions
have been completely paper-based: your doctor fills out a prescription and you
take it with you, stored in your handbag, car or home until you bring it into
the pharmacy. Even if the doctor faxes or e-mails the script, it still revolves
around that piece of paper.
If you’re someone who’s spilt
coffee on your script, or had it ripped, coloured on or chewed by a child, or
lost it completely — you’ll be all too familiar with the frustration of having
to get another script.
e-Scripts allow you to manage your
prescriptions without the piece of paper. Everything is stored in the cloud, so
you don’t have to give a second thought to where you left your repeats. If you
use a script management app we’ll even send you a reminder when you use your
When you download our app, you can
easily keep track of all of your e-scripts — view them at any time, see how
many repeats you have left, order your medication directly from your phone or
send your prescription to your pharmacy. You can also do this for family
members that you care for.
To get the app, simply visit your
local Capital Chemist and request a link from your pharmacist.
Safety and security
This technology is new to all of
us, and you’d be smart for taking a moment to consider your privacy and
You can rest assured that e-scripts
are just as secure as your paper-based scripts — if not more so. Because
e-scripts are stored in the cloud and managed digitally, you are in control of
who has access to and visibility of your script records.
Your e-script will not be shared
with anyone that doesn’t have your consent.
At Capital Chemist, we’re always
finding ways to make quality healthcare not just accessible for our patients,
but also convenient.
e-Scripts make the entire process
easier and more efficient. From the moment that you receive your script, to
sending it to your pharmacist, having it filled, and receiving a notification
that it’s ready to be collected, it really couldn’t be easier and it can all be
managed through our app.
If you prefer, you can continue to
use traditional paper-based prescriptions.
If you’d like to make the switch to
e-scripts but you’re not quite sure how to go about it, or you’d like someone
to show you how it all works, we’re here. All you need to do is pop into your
nearest Capital Chemist and ask about e-scripts.
