Cross-border ePrescriptions – Interim report

This Interim report describes the current situation regarding cross-border ePrescriptions in the Nordic countries and on a European level. The report is a result of the project Cross-border ePrescriptions in the Nordic countries which is part of the Nordic Council priority project Healthcare and care through distance-spanning technologies. The project was initiated as part of the Swedish Presidency Programme of Nordic Council of Ministers in 2018.

A final report will be presented at the end of 2020. In addition to an update of the current situation, it will include a plan for continued activities in the Nordic countries concerning cross-border ePrescriptions. It will also include information on the current situation and a future plan for exchange of Patient Summaries in the Nordic countries.

Exchange of patient summaries and ePrescriptions across country boarders are two essential components to secure that the Nordic region is the most sustainable and integrated region in the world.

The report is downloadable at the website of the Swedish eHealth Agency.
