Pharmacy Guild of Australia
The Pharmacy Guild of Australia actively endorses eRx Script Exchange, stating that-
eRx improves safety and efficiency of the prescribing and dispensing process
eRx does not support prescription channelling and therefore avoids ‘moral hazard’ for health professionals and maintains the patient’s choice of pharmacy
eRx is a Script Exchange only. Prescription data is held at eRx in a fully encrypted format and eRx does not have the ability to see any prescription or patient data
The sale or supply of bulk de-identified patient data is restricted
The technical service standards and performance of eRx are approved and monitored by the Guild
The eRx business model can rapidly deliver an e-prescription solution nationally to all pharmacists, GPs and specialists
eRx will maintain paper scripts in the process until it can be confident no Australian will be disadvantaged by the move to a paperless prescriptions
To demonstrate that community pharmacy is committed to driving innovation in the health sector
