World Record in e-Prescriptions
Sweden is now first in the world in electronic prescriptions.
According to a spokesman for the national pharmacy chain, during November 1350 prescriptions were sent directly by computer, which is a new world’s record. Today 47 percent of all new prescriptions here are electronic.
The process is probably easier here than in other countries, because all prescription and over-the-counter drugs can only be sold through a single monopoly pharmacy chain.
