Real Time Prescription Monitoring (RTPM) is a clinical tool providing real-time monitored medicines prescription information for prescribers and pharmacists to support safer clinical decision-making.
The use of a Real Time Prescription Monitoring tool is mandatory in some states and it is important to check your state-based legislation to ensure you are complying with any requirements.
Currently, RTPM is available for Victorian, South Australian, Queensland and some New South Wales users of Bp Premier and BpVIP.net, with other states expected to come on board within the next 12-18 months.
For our New South Wales sites, the rollout of this initiative is starting in the Hunter New England and Central Coast regions from Monday 25 October 2021 and being rolled out into further regions early into 2022.
To access RTPM in an enabled state, users must be registered for eRx or MediSecure and have the functionality enabled via the User Preferences window in wither BpVIP.net or Bp Premier.
