“e-prescribing continues to be a key priority” Anne Slee, ePrescribing Lead NHS England January 2017

“Data from Digital Health Intelligence’s Clinical Digital Maturity Index shows that, by 2015, 38% of England’s 154 acute trusts had implemented inpatient e-prescribing. However, only 25% (39 trusts) had the more advanced functions of an e-prescribing integrated with a clinical decision support system. Among mental health trusts, 17 (30%) had e-prescribing and 11 (20%) had e-prescribing and CDSS combined. Put all that together, and only one third of trusts have e-prescribing with decision support in place. And looked at over time, the rate of roll out is slowing – not speeding up.” Digital Health News 2016

This conference looks at moving forward with Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration (EPMA) in a hospital setting and where eprescribing fits within your digital roadmap to a paper free at the point of care service. Electronic Prescribing has the potential to support the medicines use process that can be delivered at every stage from prescribing to administration, it can provide management of prescriptions and will also give immediate access to medicines information.

Sessions will provide delegates with the understanding of how to implement and move forward with Electronic Prescribing in practice. Through learning from experienced implementers and case studies the conference will look at critical success factors in going live with eprescribing, and will particularly focus on moving forward with your eprescribing system into more complex areas with case studies in, mental health, intensive and critical care, non medical prescribing, and paediatrics. There will be case studies on Electronic Prescribing which will highlight the clinical benefits and engaging the clinical staff and the impact of eprescribing on prescribing and medication errors.
