This website contains information and resources to assist Software Developers with updating their prescribing, dispensing and claiming software with PBS data.

PBS Data Distribution

The Department of Health and Aged Care is modernising the consumption and data distribution model for the monthly PBS Schedule data, in order to:

  • Make the data easier to understand and use in software;
  • Improve data latency and data provision through best practice architecture; and
  • Improve accessibility to PBS Schedule data for the public and external stakeholders (e.g. software vendors).
