According to the new German e-health law, GPs have to provide their patients receiving more than three prescription drugs a written medication plan. This shall improve safety of drug therapy (and reduce redundant prescriptions). As the eHealth card is far from full implementation, medication plans will be handed out in paper form only.
Obviously, this leads to multiple questions, e.g. who will educate patients, what role will pharmacists play, what about OTC, etc.
As Healthcare Shapers we engage with our clients to navigate in times of such uncertainty and leverage untapped opportunities.
We held a masterclass on September 6th, 2016 in Cologne which received excellent feedback from participants. Contact us to find out more.
