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

“While significant progress has been made in the uptake of some systems, the adoption of some the most complex clinical systems – including electronic clinical decision support and advanced e-prescribing, which have the greatest potential to improve patient safety by cutting prescribing errors – remains slow..” Digital Health Intelligence April 2017

This National Summit 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. The summit will look at developing your electronic prescribing system towards advanced eprescribing and ensuring the full clinical benefits are achieved.

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.
