10:00 -11:30 Current PHARM implementations (informational)

  • Case study form
  • Presentation from Jacqueline Surugue
    • the presentation was given for e-health in Greece
    • 1ste phase community pharmacy is connected to all pharmacies through a central repository.
    • It stores 4 months of history of a patient. The pharmacist can see where the patient has been.
    • For biological medicines this period is 3 years and 21 years for vaccins.
    • Phase 2 : connect also hospitals to the repository. These are drugs that are not sold in the community.
    • Phase 3 : View from doctors into the DP using the card from the doctor and the patient ( insurance card).
    • medical doctor can only view, but not update.
    • When there is a shortage, you can communicate this alert.
    • There is also a possibility to send alerts ( terror attack, pandemic)
    • The DP is ready for the DMP ( Medical Dossier ), but the DMP is not yet implemented.
    • The DP is created by the patient. The patient has to give consent.
    • All drugs from the pharmacy, including OTC are reported except for the drugs which the patients object to.
    • There is a signal that it is not complete.
    • The pharmacist also has to use a card. The patient also has to provide his social security card.
    • 99% of pharmacy and 400 hospitals are connected.
    • 36 million have a record.
    • can have a copy and view all the profiessionals who has viewed his DP.
    • Only governments ( ASNM and INVS) can view anonimous data.
    • 60% of medication errors occurs at transition of care and the DP is a powerful tool to show the medication at transition.
    • When there is no pharmacy management system you have no interface and you have to review manually.
    • Some smaller vendor companies do not have an interface to the DP. The larger systems provide this software.
    • They use PN13 from 2018. These are French standards.
  • Jose and Joao are thinking to set up standards of feeding a central system to facilitate European exchange of information.
    • Why would a vendor replace PN13 if it works? It could convince the smaller vendor companies to develop this interace.
  • Leonidas mentions directives from the European Parliament
  • Directive 2011/24/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2011 on the application of patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare
  • In Switzerland a patient cannot hide specific lines of information, but he can refuse to participate in the program.
  • The law in Switzerland each patient should have a record in 2020, but the pharmacists have already set up there own repository. There is a chance that a patient could have 2 repositories.
  • There are now 2 standards used in Switzerland. One from Stephane and the other from other group.
  • A consultation is expected from e-health Suisse on the proposed format.
