NSW Health secures funds for real-time prescription monitoring

NSW Health expects to begin a roll-out of real-time prescription monitoring (RTPM) by June next year having secured funding to progress its implementation in last week's state budget.

While the exact amount has not been revealed as NSW has not yet issued a tender, the system will be designed to interact with the National Data Exchange (NDE) built by Fred IT on behalf of the Commonwealth.

Fantastic progression. This will be a critical tool in reducing opioid abuse and drastically increase detection.
