A report has just been published with cross-country comparison of implementations of electronic transmission of prescriptions: “European e-Prescriptions: Benefits and Success Factors“, by Ulrike Deetjen.

The report describes the economic, health, and societal benefits of e-prescriptions, within different policy structures. Based on previous evidence and expert interviews for case studies of Estonia, the United Kingdom, Denmark, and Sweden, it derives implications for their wider utilisation across Europe.
