Electronic prescribing “here to stay” in NZ primary care: study

The COVID-19 pandemic boosted uptake and acceptance of the benefits of electronic prescribing, but also highlighted some of the technical deficiencies in existing systems, a University of Otago study has found.

Published in The New Zealand Journal of Primary Healthcare, the study surveyed over 160 New Zealand GPs, practice nurses and nurse practitioners over a period of 16 weeks from May last year, examining how they dealt with the pandemic-induced change to electronic patient prescriptions.

Glad to read about this study. To add to this, within the contect of the service user's journey, would be an extension to how these prescriptions are being received and managed at the pharmacy end. The focus remains on e-prescriptions and use of different platforms, these require the team to collaborate in the interest of timely care.
