This National Summit will focus on the optimisation of Hospital Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration (HePMA) . The summit will examine the development of electronic prescribing systems towards advanced eprescribing and ensuring the full clinical benefits are achieved.

“Over the next five years, all providers will be expected to implement electronic prescribing systems to reduce errors by up to 30%.”

NHS Long Term Plan, NHS England 2019

“It is clear from the NHS Long Term Plan that digital transformation remains a key priority… The focus is now on ensuring that everyone that needs to access information can do so using digital means in every location in which they need it – medicines has been identified as a priority for this in every survey conducted over the last few years in every care sector… In hospitals this is being enabled by accelerating the use of ePrescribing systems. The use of more mature functionality to support improved prescribing and medicines administration is also underway with the global digital exemplar sites. The first sites to undertake closed loop medicines administration are now live and key interfaces to other systems are in development. ”
