Enabling ePrescribing in Helix
IMPORTANT: ePrescribing has been permitted for Melbourne Metropolitan practices only.
Step 1: Initial Setup
Each practice must have an HPI-O (Healthcare Provider Identifier – Organisation) number, which must be added to the Centre Settings (accessible via the System Administrator login).
Each registered practitioner must have an HPI-I (Healthcare Provider Identifier – Individual) number, which must be updated and saved in the User Settings in Helix.
Ensure all practitioners wishing to participate have Electronic Prescribing enabled in their Preferences settings.
Step 2: Prescribing Electronically
The prescribing workflow in MedicalDirector Helix has been amended to enable ePrescribing. To view the new workflow, read the step-by-step guide.
