Version 33.4.1 - Active Ingredient Prescribing Available Now!

13 January, 2021

Zedmed Version 33.4.1 is now available for download. This release provides support for Active Ingredient Prescribing, which is part of a legislative requirement that comes into effect on 1st February, 2021.

Under new medicine regulations, doctors must include the active ingredient names when preparing prescriptions for PBS and RPBS medicines. This means most medicines will be prescribed by their active ingredient, not the brand name. 

The goal of this initiative is to improve patients understanding of what medications they take and increase the uptake of generic and biosimilar medicines.
