PCEHR Prescription Record v1.0

The My Health Record system will provide the means to receive and store My Health Record prescription record clinical documents in a standard format that can be accessed and viewed by healthcare providers using their clinical information systems or the national provider portal, and by individuals using the national consumer portal.
The repository of My Health Record prescription records is part of the My Health Record national infrastructure. Healthcare providers, including general practitioners, will continue to send prescription records to My Health Record participating Prescription Exchange Service operators, and where the individual has not declined their consent, these records will be transformed into CDA documents and sent to the My Health Record system as signed CDA packages. Other health care provider organisations, such as jurisdictional health services, may implement local systems that send My Health Record prescription record clinical documents directly to the My Health Record national infrastructure.
