Electronic prescriptions will replace the handwritten ones, famous for their illegibility.  The pilot plan was successfully implemented in Paveh, Saveh, and Jahrom, and “three more cities will undergo the pilot in the current year (started March 21),” said Rasoul Dinarvand, head of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), reports Khabaronline.  The scheme which is provisional for the next four years will create an organized electronics database of patients’ medical history and prescribed drugs, in the form of an electronic card. Electronic prescriptions will help reduce complications caused by multi-drug interaction in patients receiving various simultaneous medical regimens.
