Budget 2017: No money for RTPM but incentives set to be tabled

There was no federal money for a rumoured roll-out of the Electronic Recording and Reporting of Controlled Drugs (ERRCD) real-time prescription monitoring system in yesterday's federal budget, although the Pharmacy Guild is reporting that this is likely in the near future.

Instead, the Guild welcomed some contingency money released under a variance to the Sixth Community Pharmacy Agreement (6CPA) that will see community pharmacy receive $30 million to incorporate medication management programs in the Health Care Homes (HCH) trials.
