Pre­scrip­tions are easy, safe and secure. They are
elec­tron­i­cally trans­mit­ted imme­di­ately to your patient’s
choice of phar­macy, with no need for the doctor’s office
to ever lift the phone or pen.

The patient has the secu­rity of being given a signed
copy of the printed prescription.

Patients ben­e­fit from increased aware­ness of their
med­ical scheme for­mu­lary – which may pro­mote
com­pli­ance and even a reduc­tion of costs because iCan
Script™ presents cost effec­tive generic alter­na­tives to
the prescriber.

Patients ben­e­fit most of all from reduced med­ical
errors and the improved qual­ity of care that e-scripting
delivers.

The tasks asso­ci­ated with writ­ing and renew­ing
pre­scrip­tions cause GP’s to sac­ri­fice time, money and
safety. Here are the facts:

Time

  • The aver­age GP writes 25 pre­scrip­tions a day and
         han­dles sev­eral repeat script requests.
     
  • Illeg­i­ble or unclear pre­scrip­tions result in many
         calls from phar­ma­cists to physi­cians ask­ing
         for clar­i­fi­ca­tion.
     

Expense

  • Reduc­ing the num­ber of queries and call­backs
         from mem­bers and phar­ma­cists on writ­ten
         pre­scrip­tions will save you time and money.

Safety

  • Due largely to leg­i­bil­ity prob­lems, writ­ten
         pre­scrip­tions must be con­firmed at phar­macy
         level in many cases.
     
  • Med­ical errors cause a large num­ber of
         pre­ventable injuries each year.
     

These are just a few of the many rea­sons to imple­ment
online pre­scrib­ing using the iCan Script™ programme.
