Electronic prescriptions option from November

Electronic prescriptions will be introduced on November 1, the state health care supply centre AEEK announced on Wednesday.

Patients will still be able to use paper prescriptions, but the new system will also allow patients to purchase their drugs with the use of their identity documents and social security card, or with a national chip-ID card alone.

From November 1, all state-financed institutions will upload data to a central database that will be accessible to pharmacies.

Patients will no longer need to present hard copies of their medical records when visiting a new doctor, AEEK underlined. (portfolio.hu; napi.hu; nepszava.hu)
