The contract with Celesio UK expands the companies’ current agreement covering AAH’s third party Proscript Link customer estate of around 2,000 pharmacies to add up to 1,800 Lloyds pharmacies in the UK. The contract cements EMIS Health’s position as the sector’s market leader. It will provide the ProScript patient medication record system to up to 50% of community pharmacies in the UK, close to its GP coverage of over 50%.
The Lloyds Pharmacies estate and AAH’s Proscript Link customers will now be able to use the Pharmacy Access service integrated with the ProScript software to allow them to send electronic repeat requests to surgeries using the EMIS Web clinical system. Pharmacists will also be able to view a summary of the medical record, subject to patient consent and GP data-sharing agreements in place, further enhancing patient care.
In addition to Pharmacy Access, Lloyds Pharmacy stores and AAH’s Proscript Link customers will have access to the My Local Pharmacy app which is integrated with ProScript to assist them in maintaining patient nominations. The nomination is reaffirmed each time a patient sends a repeat request to their nominated pharmacy using the app, ensuring the nomination does not move without the patient’s knowledge.
