Online Bookings, DVA Fees Update, Safe Script
Online bookings are a great way to increase appointment volumes, improve patient satisfaction and reduce administrative requirements. A recent study by CBA showed that 89% of patients have a preference for booking appointments online.
As such, we are adding online bookings to PrimaryClinic. We would love for you to tell us what you think about online appointment bookings. Please complete this quick survey to tell us how an online booking solution should look for you and your patients.
Take control of your online appointment bookings and link this feature with your own PrimaryClinic Practice system. Your patients or staff can book and schedule appointments directly from their phone, computer or laptop. Your practice managers can tailor the appointment availability times to suit your clinic’s hours. The platform gives you the option to take payments from users upon booking the appointment.
Ask us how we can set up online bookings for your practice and have it sync with your appointment books in PrimaryClinic today.

Regulatory change regarding SafeScript for Victorian clients
The Victorian Government is taking action to reduce the increasing harm associated with high-risk prescription medicines by implementing SafeScript, Victoria’s real-time prescription monitoring system.
Effective from 2 July 2018, SafeScript requires prescribers to include the patient’s date of birth on all prescriptions for medicines monitored through the system. More information can be found on SafeScript website.
If you are using PrimaryClinic Medical (previously known as Medinet), you can enable the printing of DOB on prescriptions under Settings/Global options/Rx/Print DOB on Prescriptions. Just make sure the parameter is turned to ‘True’ like the screenshot below:
