E-Prescribing Market – Dynamics

An indication-based prescribing system can reorganize the medication list of patients into a proper grouping with indications, which simplifies the medication reconciliation task and facilitates re-prescribing medications at the time of transitions. These systems also spot duplicates and permit an accurate evaluation of adjustments and discontinuations. Indication e-prescribing allows clear assessments of drug effectivity to support the research of drug outcomes and make prompt changes in labeling or prescribing drugs for off-label use. Narrowing medication choices have proven to reduce medication errors. The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) has recommended including the medication's purpose in prescriptions and hospital orders to prevent errors. The knowledge about the purpose of a medication enables health care practitioners to differentiate between medications with similar names and avoid confusion and prescription errors.
