e-Scripting for Doctors

AlphaeScript pioneering e-Scripting in South Africa!

AlphaScript Pharmacy uses various dynamic and easy to use e-Scripting Platforms that electronically supports the entire prescription process linking the doctor, patient and medical scheme with the participating AlphaScript Network Provider.

The e-Script Platforms allow the doctor to automatically link the patient to their medical scheme formulary and reimbursement rules, thus minimizing the inconvenience and unnecessary costs of co-payments on processing of the prescription by the participating AlphaScript Network Provider.

The e-Script Platforms include full listing of all approved pharmaceutical preparations, their pricing and all the generic equivalents. It also includes the ICD10 codes, as approved by the medical schemes, and facilitates accurate claim processing by the participating AlphaScript Network Provider.

The e-Script Platforms are directly linked to the dispensary software platform of AlphaScript Pharmacy so that the pharmacists can prepare and label the prescription items in advance in complete confidence without having to phone the doctor to clarify his/her handwriting or to request a substitute item because of the patient’s medical scheme restrictions or benefits.
