Control workflows

eRx is designed to give you control over how prescription information is shared. Because the system is already part of today’s leading clinical software, all you have to do is register, activate, and carry on with business as usual.

Improve patient safety

Securely transmitting and tracking prescription and key patient information improves the quality and safety of medication provision. Reducing adverse drug events and transcription errors keeps Australians’ health at the forefront.

eRx is Australia’s largest and most clinically significant health Information exchange:

  • 2 billion clinical records
  • 99% of eScripts are delivered in under 3 seconds

“We love using eRx. It’s great when those barcodes come through; scanning them makes dispensing so much easier. eRx helps improves patient safety by reducing transcription errors which is important to us.”

Alex Keipert, Pharmacy Owner, Mudgee NSW 

eRx works in 5 simple steps:

  1. Doctors prescribe medication and print scripts with an eRx barcode.
  2. Patients take scripts to the participating pharmacy of their choosing.
  3. Pharmacists scan eRx barcodes to automatically download information.
  4. Patients receive their prescribed medication.
  5. Doctors’ clinical records are updated to reflect that a script has been filled.
