A new version has been released for this end product

Please refer to PCEHR Dispense Record v1.1 or refer to the Release History for all releases of this End Product.


The My Health Record system will provide the means to receive and store My Health Record dispense 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 dispense records is part of the My Health Record national infrastructure. Healthcare providers, including community pharmacists, will continue to send dispense records to My Health Record participating Prescription Exchange Service (PES) 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 dispense record clinical documents directly to the My Health Record national infrastructure.

PCEHR Dispense Record - CDA Implementation Guide v1.0

This document provides a guide to implementing the 'logical' model detailed by the Agency's PCEHR Dispense Record Structured Content Specification (PDR SCS) as an HL7 Clinical Document Architecture Release 2 (CDA) XML document. This guide is based on version 1.0 of the PDR SCS. The primary aim of the guide is to take implementers step by step through mapping each data component of the PDR SCS to a corresponding CDA attribute or element.
