From the Dispense Form:

1. Select a patient; ensure the pharmacy has access to their ASL. For further details see Request Access to a Registered Patient's ASL

2. Click ASL View.

The Active Script List window is displayed populated with the selected patient’s active prescriptions.

3. Highlight the required eScript/s in the list, (using standard windows shortcuts e.g. [Ctrl + mouse click] or [Shift + mouse click]) and click Dispense.

Note Only eScripts can be dispensed from the ASL, if paper scripts are selected the following prompt is displayed when Dispense is clicked.

Click OK to close and continue with the dispensing process (the paper scripts will not be dispensed via the ASL dispensing process), or click Cancel to return to the Active Script List window to re-select only eScripts.
eScripts can be recognised by the E icon and they will display a token. Scripts without the E icon and no token are paper scripts.

4. The eScript is downloaded and the Dispense Form will populate with the eScript Details.

5. Dispense as per your usual process, refer to Dispense an eScript for more information.

6. Where multiple scripts were highlighted in the Active Script List, the Okay button on the Dispense Form is replaced with the Next + <the number of eScripts selected and waiting to be dispensed for that patient>.

The Dispense Save and Process this script? window is displayed.
