The medicines information view can quickly sort and display medicines information held in a patient’s My Health Record documents in date or alphabetical order.

The information in the medicines information view is gathered from:

  • the patient’s most recent (and up to two years’) prescription and dispense records and other PBS claims information
  • the patient’s most recent shared health summary and discharge summary
  • recent event summaries, specialist letters and e-Referral notes uploaded to the patient’s record since their latest shared health summary, and
  • the patient’s personal health summary that may include any allergies or adverse reactions and other key information

If available, a link to the pharmacist shared medicines list (PSML) will also be provided in the medicines information view. The PSML is a list of all medicines the patient is known to be taking (prescribed, over-the-counter and complementary medicines) at the time the list is created and uploaded to the patient’s My Health Record, by a pharmacist.

Healthcare providers can benefit from the medicines Information view by reducing the time usually required to search through recent summaries or relevant documents to find information about a patient’s medications. The medicines information view can also assist in the transition of care and medicines management for patients between their treating doctors and pharmacists.

The medicines Information view is available under the DOCUMENTS tab in the National Consumer Portal and National Provider Portal.

This view can be found in most clinical information systems (CIS) under the OTHER DOCUMENTS LIST, and in the Documents tab of the Provider Portal.

Please contact your CIS software vendor if you are unable to access the medicines information view.
