Budget 2018: National ePrescribing system to go live next October
The federal government has allocated $15.3 million in this year's budget to introduce a national electronic prescribing system for the PBS, due to begin in October 2019.
The measure will allow prescribing doctors to use their clinical software to issue an electronic prescription as a legal form of prescription. At present, the legal form of scripts must be on paper.
