Digital or E-prescription is an essential tool in the field of Digital Healthcare, and E-prescriptions have evolved rapidly to accommodate healthcare methodologies. Digital Prescription was introduced into the digital healthcare system to ensure the confidentiality of the patient and their concerns and to minimize the errors of prescriptions. The advancements in digital healthcare include launching new features such as advanced digital screens highlighting the dosage and frequency of medications, taking note of any previous drug allergies, or any prior medical condition, noting the BMI, providing a separate column of recommendations, and more. These advancements have not only made prescriptions easily readable for doctors but also for pharmacists. Many of the issues faced by doctors, patients, and pharmacists in previous years have been resolved through advances in healthcare technology by the platforms such as SmartCare.
These advances allow E-prescriptions to provide many advantages; some of which have been mentioned below:
