Enabling integrated clinical software to support SafeScript NSW

Accessing SafeScript NSW using integrated clinical software allows health practitioners to receive pop-up notifications on their desktop prescribing or dispensing system, warning them when a potentially high-risk scenario is detected within the database and their patient may be at risk of harm.

There are several steps practice managers, IT support teams or health practitioners will need to take to enable their integrated clinical software to support SafeScript NSW.

Register before enabling clinical software

Prescribers in pharmacists must register before enabling their clinical software. Register for SafeScript NSW.

SafeScript NSW Notification App – Light Integration

If your clinical software is not fully integrated with SafeScript NSW, install the RTPM Notification App on each of the devices used to access SafeScript NSW.

This will enable the device to receive real-time pop-up notifications immediately after you finalise a monitored medicine prescription.
