We recognise the place of quality medicines information for people’s day-to-day health and wellbeing and in the transfer of care between settings. This is why we want to ensure community pharmacists can access people's health records, and also share the vital information they hold with patients and their other clinicians.
The Agency is partnering with community pharmacy dispensing software providers, to enhance their products to allow viewing and uploading to the My Health Record system. We also want this sector to use Australian Medicines Terminology to enhance the quality and interoperability of medicines information.
This functionality will be the bedrock on which to build more sophisticated medicines information, summaries and alerts in local systems, and to attract system- wide benefits. Ultimately, this will contribute to improving medicines safety for consumers, health professionals and the wider community.
To support this objective, the Agency has worked with industry on Funding Principles to support software developers to utilise national digital health services.
