Notifications

Each time you prescribe or dispense a monitored medicine, a SafeScript NSW notification will display, to indicate the estimated risk based on the patient's monitored medicine history. Click the notification to open the patient's profile in the SafeScript NSW portal.

If your prescribing or dispensing software provider has integrated with SafeScript NSW, you can receive real-time SafeScript NSW notifications directly in your clinical software, before finalising a prescription.
