As there is only one item per ePrescription, there are limited reasons to defer an eScript. However, you may find that you need to defer an eScript:

1. If you use Quick Dispense via Minfos Packing or another Third Party packing provider. Deferring the script gives the packing system visibility that a new script is available.

2. For Scripts on File customers, you can defer eScripts so that you are aware the patient has a new script on file. Alternatively, you could print a paper copy of the token and put this in the patient’s file.

To defer an eScript follow the same process as a paper prescription.
