DoH won't release report into prescription exchange price cap

The Australian Department of Health will not release a report commissioned from consulting firm Boston Consulting Group (BCG) into the electronic prescription ecosystem that informed a recent tender that seeks to reduce the cost the government pays to subsidise electronic prescription exchanges.

DoH issued a tender earlier this year that looks to put a cap on the price paid to subsidise prescription exchange services (PES) – now being termed prescription delivery services (PDS) by the department – which form the basis of not just the new eScript token capability and active script list registries but also the more established barcoded paper scripts introduced over a decade ago.
