Pharmacy access to patient electronic health records provides a way to access patient information required to provide pharmacy services.
Various electronic health records are used by pharmacists in daily practice - from the patient medication records that are in routine use in pharmacies, to the national summary records that are being rolled out and piloted in some areas. Information on the national summary care records in each country can be found below.
Our Care Records resource provides information on professional and legal requirements concerning the use and management of patient information.
We have developed a RPS decision tool to support Using Electronic Health Records (EHR) professionally in GB.
