Vic releases SafeScript regulations as ACT promises to implement RTPM

The Victorian government has released proposed regulations for its $29.5 million SafeScript real-time prescription monitoring (RTPM) system, which will be mandatory for doctors and pharmacists to use after an 18-month introductory period.

Victoria is building its own system rather than use the national electronic reporting and recording of controlled drugs (ERRCD) platform, contracting Fred IT to build, implement and support SafeScript to the tune of $6.67m over four years, with $3.5m going to Fred subsidiary Medication Knowledge to run the prescribing and dispensing data feed.
