Development of EPS for secondary care
During 2020 we worked with NHSX on a discovery project using a primary care system to support outpatient prescribing, with a small cohort of mixed organisational types (acute, community and mental health).
The learning from this short term project is informing the development of EPS for secondary care. Work is already underway with a number of system suppliers on solutions to enable EPS for secondary care for outpatient prescribing to community pharmacy and homecare prescriptions.
Trusts should refer prescribing system suppliers to information about the new FHIR API-based EPS service for further detail.
