Because the e-Prescription system draws on data from the national health insurance fund, any state medical subsidies that the patient is entitled to also appear, and the medicine is discounted automatically. Another advantage of the system is that doctor visits are no longer needed for repeat prescriptions. A patient can contact the doctor by e-mail, Skype or phone, and the doctors can issue refills with just a few clicks. The patient can then collect their medicine from the nearest pharmacy.
Today, 99% of all prescriptions in the country are issued electronically. This frees up time for patients and doctors, and reduces administrative strain on hospitals.
