Zedmed Compliance with Real-Time Prescription Monitoring Programs (NDE)

The National Data Exchange (NDE) is a commonwealth government initiative to allow Australian state and territory jurisdictions to provide real-time prescription monitoring for their clinicians. The NDE ingests and distribute prescribing and dispensing information from all states and territories to prevent cross-border drug shopping abuses.

The NDE is referred to by different names in different states. In Victoria, it is called SafeScript and has been in legislated operation since early 2020. In SA, it is called ScriptCheckSA and will be mandatory from early 2021.
