Electronic prescribing in New Zealand hospitals has moved closer with pharmacy software company DMS agreeing to incorporate such technology from i-Health into its WinDose pharmacy software.

Together with pharmacy software company Galen Group, DMS provides hospital-based pharmacy applications of 14 of the 21 district health boards or 70% of the market. Galen Group already uses health software company i-Health’s electronic prescribing technology.

The first live New Zealand site for electronic prescribing is expected to be Lakes District Health Board, covering Rotorua and Taupo, which has entered a development partnership with i-Health through Cap Gemini Ernst & Young. Lakes District Health Board has bought i-Health’s electronic prescribing module as part of a clinical intranet project.
