This process is an overview of the steps required by software developers to declare electronic prescribing software conformant with the Agency’s technical framework.  

Electronic prescribing is an option for prescribers and their patients to use an electronic prescription as an alternative to a paper prescription. Changes to Commonwealth legislation commenced on 31 October 2019 recognising an electronic prescription as an alternative legal form by which medicines can be supplied under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS). In conjunction with the legislative changes, a new technical framework to support electronic prescribing has been developed by the Australian Digital Health Agency (the Agency). The technical framework details the requirements for developers of clinical software to make changes to their software products to accommodate electronic prescribing.

This guide explains how a requesting clinician can communicate to a pathology or diagnostic imaging provider that they should not upload a report to the patient’s My Health Record.
