President of the Pharmaceutical Society of Jamaica, Dr Winsome Christie, is recommending the establishment of a technical framework to manage the implementation of Electronic prescriptions.
Electronic or E- prescribing is a computer-based electronic generation, transmission and filling of medical prescriptions.
There are mounting concerns over the framework in place to facilitate e-prescriptions.
She says there’s need for proper monitoring of how prescriptions are managed.
