A pharmacist requires a password to dispense an ePrescription (how often that password is required to be entered is configurable, refer to Pharmacist Password Configuration) and, depending on your pharmacy’s configuration, may be required to view a patient’s My Health Record. 

A Pharmacist’s password is only valid for a maximum of 90 days inclusive. The same password cannot be used consecutively.

Minfos’ user security manages which users have access to Pharmacist Maintenance and their level of control. Admin level is required to add a pharmacist, de-activate and re-active a pharmacist and assist pharmacists with managing their passwords.
