Mandatory electronic prescriptions was the easy bit in NHS paperless plans


An expert opinion

I can call myself an expert in this field as I am developing software for electronic medical prescriptions (you can find more information on this process here -

Unfortunately, not everything is so simple, there are many factors that hinder the digitization of the recipe system:

1) Lack of uniform standard for applications

2) The previous point leads to mistrust of the pharmacy employees

3) There are too many small providers of such software, most of their solutions are not complex and cannot be applied everywhere

4) The older generation does not use it as actively

This area will surely await innovations, but the legislative base has not yet been prepared, it is difficult to talk about a full-fledged transition to electronic prescriptions.
