NSW Health “committed” to RTPM as ADHA reviews roll-outs

NSW Health says it is still committed to implementing a real-time prescription monitoring system but will not release to the public a Deloitte report into the state's capabilities it commissioned last year.

Meanwhile, the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) has confirmed it has been asked to review the current state of RTPM implementations across the country, despite Health Minister Greg Hunt promising to implement a national system by the end of 2018.

The national RTPM system, known as ERRCD, was first announced in February 2012, with all states given a free licence to software first developed in Tasmania.
