The Australian Digital Health Agency
The Australian Digital Health Agency (the Agency) and the Commonwealth Department of Health have been progressing electronic prescribing for Australia that will provide an option for prescribers and their patients to have an electronic prescription as an alternative to a paper-based prescription.  The Electronic Prescriptions Project (EPP) will create an option for prescribers and their patients to have a fully electronic prescription as the legal alternative to paper-based prescriptions. It will also support a national electronic prescribing framework that will contribute to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) efficiency, compliance, drug safety and data collection. The Department of Health has made changes to Commonwealth PBS regulations and has engaged with the states and territories to ensure amendments are aligned across Commonwealth, State and Territory legislation to deliver a nationally consistent electronic prescribing framework. The Agency has developed the technical framework to support electronic prescriptions. More information on this work is available at:
