Electronic Transfer of Prescriptions (ETP) resources

Electronic Transfer of Prescriptions (ETP) describes the safe and secure transfer of prescription information between a Prescriber (doctor, specialist, dentist, optometrist, nurse practitioner, and so on) and a Community Pharmacy using an electronic system known as a Prescription Exchange Service (PES).

There are currently two PES systems operating in Australia – eRx Script Exchange and MediSecure. Each PES has been approved by the Commonwealth and is required to meet specified standards relating to security and privacy. A pharmacy or medical practice may be connected to one or both PES systems.
