White Paper – The Importance of Interoperability for Medicines Management
“The management of medicines within our hospital settings is largely dependent on manual processes. These are time-consuming to operate, prone to errors through slips, lapses, and short cuts, they lack governance, and they remove staff from direct clinical contact with patients.
We have often dreamt of a system of care with medicines which is provided through integrated digital systems using data and where patient safety is paramount. This is interoperability.”
– Professor Liz Kay, Clinical Pharmacist and Retired Clinical Director of Medicines Optimisation.
