About us

eRx Script Exchange was established in April 2009 and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fred IT Group.

Proudly Australia’s first and largest Prescriptions Exchange Service, eRx is designed and built for medical practitioners, pharmacists and patients. We work in partnership with every leading medical and pharmacy software vendor to ensure our service works for all Australia health professionals.

eRx is an interoperable Prescription Exchange Service (PES) 

There are two PES operating in Australia – eRx Script Exchange and MediSecure.

A PES provides a secure and safe electronic transfer of prescription (ETP) information, between medical practitioners and pharmacists. It is a key enabler of delivering medications information instantly to eHealth systems such as My Health Record (MyHR), MySL and real time prescription monitoring (RTPM).

The two exchanges are inter-operable, meaning electronic prescriptions sent to one exchange can be downloaded by a pharmacy connected to the other exchange.

Exchange level interoperability was achieved in December 2012 and was done without any disruption or change being required from doctors and their software vendors. There is however additional work for the dispensing software vendors to do before we can say we have full interoperability in Australia

Watch ePrescriptions in action

What our customers think

  • “eRx allows my practitioners to send prescriptions electronically directly to the patient, so they instantly have their prescription. It saves admin time faxing and posting, and allows us more time to focus on helping our patients.”
    – Char MacDonald - Abermain Surgery and NSW/ACT AAPM Committee Member
  • “We love using eRx. It’s great when those barcodes come through, scanning them makes dispensing so much easier. eRx improves patient safety by reducing transcription errors which is important to us.”
    – Alex Keipert - Pharmacy Owner - Mudgee NSW
  • “I commend eRx and ePrescriptions, as it has reduced my workload of printing a minimum of over 100 scripts every week, in addition to having to sign each script twice and having to handwrite the details of the S8 scripts. Also the Real Time Prescription Monitoring (RTPM) has helped in checking the status with restricted scripts.”
    – Dr Mario Fernando - Principal GP at Lima Medical Pty Ltd, Bendigo VIC
  • “Just a note to tell you how happy I am with eRx and ePrescriptions. When I scan prescriptions all the information is immediately there and it saves so much time. Also, ctg scripts are caught, (which often get missed as I notice from repeats we get from other pharmacies), which allows us to provide a more efficient service to our customers.”
    – Glenna Hinschen - Proserpine Pharmacy
