The law requires that any electronic record (such as an electronic script which an authorised prescriber must sign by law) may only be signed using an AES.
The AES provided by Scriptabl is issued in compliance with the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act, 2002 (ECT Act) and the Medicines and Related Substances Act, 1965 (Medicines Act). Scriptabl also enables compliance with Protection of Personal Information Act, 2013 (PoPIA) by safeguarding the confidentiality and integrity of electronic scripts.
The Medicines Act and Regulations require that a doctor or vet follow up an electronically-communicated script (such as an email or fax) within seven days with an original signed script, which the pharmacist must retain. An electronically-created script avoids this requirement if it is signed using an AES, as it is, by definition, the original.
