This is why you should make the switch to e-scripts

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 last repeat!

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 security.

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.

Convenience

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.

Support

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.
