Overnight, GuildLink has released an update to GuildCare’s vaccination recording service to support an announcement made by the Western Australia Minister for Health, Roger Cook at the Pharmacy WA Forum yesterday. WA pharmacists can now administer vaccines to persons aged 16 years and over, that will protect the community against illnesses including diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis (dTP), measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), and meningococcal ACWY strains.
Only last month, the leading pharmacy professional services platform, GuildLink, responded to another change to vaccinations in WA, in less than 24 hours. This change supported pharmacists in being able to vaccinate children as young as 10 years old against influenza.
Vaccinations recorded in GuildCare are automatically sent to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR), allowing pharmacists to both meet vaccination recording requirements and save time entering vaccination information. The AIR integration removes double handling of patient data, providing a more accurate and efficient system of recording vaccinations.
Arun Sharma, CEO GuildLink said “We are committed to delivering state based legislation changes as soon as possible to support the role of pharmacists as vaccinators and to help protect Australians from the communicable diseases.”
GuildCare was the first professional services platform to integrate with the AIR and is proud to be at the forefront of supporting pharmacists to practice to their full scope, and put their patients and their communities first.
