openEHR & medication management: EPS case study
45 min webinar

With the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS), prescribers can electronically send prescriptions to dispensers, such as pharmacies. EPS is already widely utilised in primary care settings, including GP practices, urgent care, and community prescribing environments. And when built on openEHR, the solution has several advantages. In the webinar, Nishali Patel and Darren Powell will discuss the strategic implementation of the EPS in second-care settings. Additionally, Leo Martin-Scott will share Somerset NHS Foundation Trust’s experience and rationale behind successfully implementing EPS.
