This report from Better explores what lies in store for digital medication management following an online event it hosted.

It features contributions from a number of speakers who presented at the event. This included Dr Nicholas Appelbaum, the founder of Dosium, spoke about how technology has great potential to reduce medication related errors, but we still have a long way to go before healthcare applications and decision support systems will be connected and will run smoothly.

While Ann Slee, NHS England’s associate chief clinical information officer for medicines addressed the challenge of making medication data interoperable among hospitals and healthcare institutions.

Electronic prescribing was also on the agenda with Leo Martin-Scott, lead ePMA pharmacist at Somerset NHS Foundation Trust and Duncan Cripps, lead ePMA Pharmacist at University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust. The pair discussed how hospitals must have a very clear idea of the benefits they expect to gain from electronic medication management.

Finally, CEO of ORCHA, Liz Ashall-Payne spoke about how clinicians have to navigate through the 375.000 digital health apps which are currently available in the market.
