eHealth and mHealth

EAHP's policy statement on eHealth and mHealth calls for: 

  • systematic and universal achievement of electronic prescribing and use of electronic patient records;
  • ensuring bar coding of medicines to the single unit primary package to enable more widespread takeup of bedside scanning in European hospitals, thus improving patient safety; 
  • appropriate regulatory oversight mechanisms to ensure the promises of mHealth applications have a positive impact, and to limit the opportunity for ‘rogue’ applications; and, 
  • ensuring hospital pharmacists are involved in the design, specification of parameters and evaluation of ICT within the medicines processes.
