MoH to use Electronic prescriptions

Health Minister Sheikh Dr Basel AlSabah said the experimental use of electronic prescriptions at Sabah Al-Ahmad cardiac disease and Al-Rashed allergy centers was successful.

Speaking to reporters, he explained that the e-prescription system will help achieve safety for patients, save public funds, avoid medicine repetition, medical errors, regulate prescriptions, track medicine consumption rates and reserves in various pharmacies and warehouses.

Sheikh Basel added that the system will also facilitate the prescribing process, dose calculation, prepare statistics and limit the use of smuggled and fake medications.

“The new system will use the health ministry’s iCloud app and tablets to read patients’ smart civil IDs and prescribe the right medicine,” he explained, noting that the system will also send dashboard warnings to all platforms and emails to both doctors and patients. Sheikh Basel added that the new system will enable doctors to get lists of medicines prescribed for patients with chronic diseases every two months and up to every six months before reexamining them.
