The Scottish Government and NHS Scotland invites AER members to share best practices on digital health tools regarding digital prescribing and dispensing pathways.
Reforming Primary Care
The Scottish Government and NHS Scotland is currently in the process of reforming Primary Care. Elements of that reform include the expansion of the multi-disciplinary team so that people receive the right professional care at the right time and by the right clinician.
One key component that underpins this reform is the prescribing and dispensing (of medications) pathway. Options are explored for developing a fully digital prescribing and dispensing pathway that encompasses all primary care prescribers. The aim is to help to reduce duplication and improve clarity relating to accountability.
Scotland would like to learn from other regions that have fully or partially implemented digital tools and processes that support end-to-end, multi-disciplinary prescribing / dispensing pathways.
Please share what you are doing in your region and contact Nessa Barry, Knowledge Exchange Manager, NHS National Services Scotland by email under firstname.lastname@example.org by 02 September 2019.
