The Pharmacy Network is a province wide system that links pharmacies to a record of your medications. It will improve your healthcare.
When you have a prescription filled by your pharmacy, the Pharmacy Network stores details about the medications you are taking. The next time you fill a prescription, your pharmacist can see those details. This makes it easier and quicker to decide which medications are safe for you to take.
What does this mean for you? Improved safety. Better healthcare.
Over time, other points of care (such as clinics, hospitals and the doctor’s office) will connect to the Pharmacy Network. This will provide key information about your health to the people who need it – your health professionals – when and where they need it. This will make planning your treatment easier, quicker, and safer.
The Centre for Health Information is implementing the Pharmacy Network. The Centre designs and implements secure information systems like the Pharmacy Network as part of the provincial Electronic Health Record (EHR). These systems connect and share your health information among your healthcare professionals. Through these systems, the Centre is working to improve the health of every person in Newfoundland and Labrador.
