API Services

Because the MPS API was designed to support publishing, most of the functions are oriented to three key content types / patterns. These represent the most common pathways for users to navigate the PBS content:

  • Drugs — meaning the generic drug name.
  • Items — the actual PBS item as defined by the item code.
  • Brands  — usually the same value as the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

With API version 0.3, the coupling between the API and the publishing system became looser. This is a pattern that is set to continue, in the meantime, all feedback is welcome. Feel free to comment via the PBS Webmaster .
