Connecting to Prescription Exchange Service
In preparation for QScript and the implementation of the Medicines and Poisons Act 2019, pharmacies and medical clinics that dispense any monitored medicines referred to in the legislation are encouraged to connect to a Prescription Exchange Service (PES).
Connecting your dispensing software to a PES allows the upload of prescribing and dispensing data into the system, giving more complete patient information and a better user experience of the system once it is available.
In Australia, there are 2 PES systems in operation, eRx Script Exchange and MediSecure. Approximately 90 per cent of all community pharmacies in Queensland are already connected to 1 or both prescription exchange services.
To connect to a PES, please contact your software vendor for more information or contact a PES provider on the details below:
