Spain's Regional Extremadura Government Launches Electronic Prescription System With IBM
Date:6/5/2009

rescribed medicines and dosage instructions that have a barcode, or "identity mark," for their individual treatment.

In the pharmacy, a pharmacist fills the prescription from the updated health record, which is encrypted to ensure the confidentiality of patient information. Pharmacists note the refill using the patient's health card and the barcode. The doctor can check that the medicine has been dispensed and view any questions posed by the patient to the pharmacist.

IBM is working with clients around the world to create smarter healthcare systems. This includes better integrated data so doctors, patients and insurers can share information seamlessly and efficiently; moving away from paper records in order to reduce medical errors and improve efficiencies; and applying advanced analytics to vast amounts of data to improve medical research, diagnosis and treatment.

During the past seven months, more than a million electronic prescriptions have been dispensed in Extremadura.
