The Medicines View Optimisation aims to reduce duplication by enhancing the interoperability between PBS - and AMT- coded items as well as enhancing existing grouping and ‘Differs Advisory’ logic. The implementation of the full PBS to AMT Map will also enable form and/or strength change advisories to be provided based on AMT codes rather than relying on PBS codes alone which may no longer be present. All changes have been implemented on the back-end logic and will have no impact on the User Interface. This will be released as part of the My Health Record Release 11 currently scheduled to go-live in early March 2020.
