PrescribeIT's Contribution to Addressing Canada's Opioid Crisis

E-prescribing platform PrescribeIT® offers numerous advantages that significantly improve patient care and optimize healthcare operations through its electronic prescription transmission system. By mitigating errors linked to handwritten prescriptions, PrescribeIT® enables secure transmission of a prescription directly from an electronic medical record (EMR) to a pharmacy management system (PMS), allowing prescribers and pharmacists to communicate directly within their workflows, posing questions and asking for clarifications, and enabling smoother collaboration within a patient’s circle of care. Dispense notifications also help clinicians confirm that the correct medication is reaching the intended patient. 

Additionally, the platform aids in optimizing the utilization of controlled substances like opioids, which pose significant risks if misused, while simultaneously reducing associated hazards. Electronic prescribing enables physicians to dispense smaller quantities of medications, which can potentially reduce the likelihood of unintended overdoses. By offering timely access to necessary medications, electronic prescribing also mitigates the accumulation of excess medication, and lowers the risk of diversion or intentional overdose.

This approach enables clinicians and pharmacists to confidently ensure that patients receive appropriate medications, accurately dosed and timely dispensed, thus enhancing overall treatment efficacy and patient safety.
