EMIS Health ePrescribing includes:

Drug Chart View – clear, intuitive display of prescriptions and the whole patient’s treatment. Critical information is clearly highlighted, such as overdue doses.

Chemotherapy – dedicated oncology module within ePrescribing system, improving care and safety for cancer patients Discharge Summaries – faster patient discharge turn-around times through automated production of discharge information from secondary to primary and community settings.
