The New Greek National E-Prescription System: A Powerful Ehealth Tool for Improving Services to Citizens and Administrative Control

Description: 

 

The national e-prescription system of Greece was introduced in 2011. It was
fastly and successfully and already covers more than 95% of all prescriptions prescribed
today (more than 6.5 million per month). Its introduction provided a powerful tool for
improving patient services and public health planning. The system is also already a valuable
source of planning, control and transparency data for the Greek healthcare system. New
extensions are also currently implemented through the SoHealth project. The experience from
its application at national level in Greece has also shown that e-Prescription systems can also
provide a very useful tool for better administrative control and for containing unnecessary
expenditure related to medication use.

Issues and Prospects of e-health in Pakistan

Description: 

"Information-intensive infrastructure is a requirement for information dissemination due to the shortage of network infrastructure in the majority of developing states. It is verified by many researches that information managing technologies with their main purpose of 'handling information' have an advantage to enhance already existing technologies by making better information-communication a priori to new ICT innovations. Presently health information system infrastructure is deficient in resources to meet the demands and needs to increasing population in developing countries. Health care systems of developing countries have major barriers like poverty and lack of technological sophistication."

Perspective: Transforming medical education through informatics

Description: 

"In the United States and around the world there have been massive changes in the way that health care is evolving - the way that we deliver care, the models of care, the concept of the interprofessional team, the system of care as a network that extends increasingly outside of the hospital much more than in, population and global care, and evidence-based medicine. We are challeneged to keep up with our education system's "adaptivity" in this dynamic environment.

At the same time the disruptive effects of technological advaces are dramatically accelerating and will challenge the way that healthcare providers, schools teaching young doctors, and patients themselves will experience and understand clinical data. There are emerging technologies that will be implemented around the world, almost instantly; whereas, these analogs in the past took decades to spreach globally."
