Drug Security Forum

Priorities for Digital Transformation of the Pharmaceutical Market

14 Jun , 14:30–16:00
‘Ensuring Drug Security’ Russian Pharmaceutical Forum
Pavilion G, conference hall G6

Information technology has become firmly established in pharmacies, primarily in the areas of information sharing, the barcoding of medicines, and statistical data processing. The rules for prescribing medicines have changed, and prescriptions can be issued both in paper and electronic form. The drug flow monitoring system makes it possible to monitor the provision of medicines, to trace a medicine’s path from manufacturer to pharmacy, thus guaranteeing its authenticity. Given the continuing problem of online sales of medicines which are prohibited or restricted, digitalization ensures the transparency and safety of both prescription and over-the-counter medicines. What are the benefits of developing a single digital network for all those involved in the pharmaceutical supply industry? Will the creation of a single digital network improve control over the availability of medicines in medical institutions and pharmacy chains? What are the risks of a full transition to an electronic prescription system? The laboratory information system: how, why, and for what?
