Dispense records go live in NSW

On Saturday 25 November, NSW Health went live sending dispense records to the My Health Record from a number of different sites around NSW. These are the first sites to begin sharing dispensed medication records from iPharmacy with HealtheNet and My Health Record.

Participants included South Eastern Sydney LHD, Illawarra Shoalhaven LHD, Sydney Children’s Hospital (Randwick) and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. Other LHDs will be integrated following the successful implementation at these sites.

NSW now joins the NT in uploading these structured dispense records into the My Health Record, with other states and territories well on the way. The Medicines view in the My Health Record automatically collates medicines information in each patient’s My Health Record and this dispense information will be easily viewed alongside prescriptions from local GPs.
