By September 15, 2016 No Comments

XVT is excited to announce the successful launch of New South Wales (NSW) Electronic Recording and Reporting of Controlled Drugs (ERRCD) solution in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, NSW.

The ERRCD solution’s aim is to reduce the negative health impacts associated with the misuse of prescription drugs. It provides access to accurate dispensing information which improves the efficiency by which state and territory regulators, prescribers and pharmacists identify problems of forgery, abuse and doctor shopping, improving public health outcomes. You can find out more about ERRCD here.

We are pleased to be able to provide a solution that can support a growing state population of over 7.5 million people, the largest in Australia.

This first phase of the ERRCD NSW implementation will support the ongoing management of authorities to prescribe controlled drugs which include opioids, benzodiazepines, psychostimulants and cannabinoids. Some of the features that NSW ERRCD provides include: dynamic forms with customisable review and approval workflows, psychostimulant notifications, patient and prescriber management, patient transfers, ability to merge duplicate records, letter generation, operational reporting.

The ERRCD implementation is hosted on secure private cloud infrastructure which will be able to support other states and territories who choose to implement the real-time monitoring and reporting of controlled drugs solution.

The NSW ERRCD implementation demonstrates XVT’s continued interest and involvement in eHealth, in particular pharmaceutical management and monitoring solutions. We have been working in this field for the last 9 years, with successful implementations of the original DAPIS Online application suite in Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory. The NSW ERRCD platform is a modern, secure web-enabled cloud based solution which has replaced an ageing legacy system.
