Triplicate Prescription Program (TPP) Alberta gears up to launch new secure prescription form

May 2, 2018

After wide consultation with prescribers, dispensers, and program partners, TPP Alberta has redesigned its secure prescription form.

The new form includes enhanced security features, improved legibility, and a new check-box section (indication for therapy) for optimizing patient care. To support data quality, prescriber registration numbers have also replaced the TPP Prescriber ID.

The new form is still a 3-part prescription: with one copy each for the prescriber, the dispenser, and TPP Alberta. The program’s process and conditions also remain unchanged, such as the 72-hour validity and rules for fax transmittal (voiding form post-transmission).

The program anticipates the new forms will be ready for circulation in May/June 2018. Alberta physicians have been advised to use all remaining triplicate forms in stock before ordering the new forms. Please accept the existing forms as they are still valid during the transition.
