Prescription information from community pharmacies is one of many sources of information being contributed to the Electronic Health Record (EHR).
As of November 30, 2016, all community pharmacies are submitting information on drug dispenses to the Electronic Health Record. We want to thank the following for contributing to this project and for helping reach this significant goal:
- New Brunswick College of Pharmacists;
- New Brunswick Pharmacists’ Association;
- Pharmacy corporations;
- Pharmacy software vendors and
- All New Brunswick community pharmacies and their pharmacy teams.
The EHR is a valuable tool that authorized health-care professionals may access to make safe and more informed decisions about patient care. The monitored drug information collected from pharmacies also supports the New Brunswick Prescription Monitoring Program (NB PMP).
