NOVENTI receives contract for developing e-prescription storage for the model project “GERDA”

E-Prescriptions are already being tested in model projects. The NGDA (Network Operating Company of German Pharmacists) put the development of e-prescription storage up for bid as part of the large project”GERDA” (“protected e-prescription service for pharmacies”) of the ABDA (Federal Association of German Pharmacist Associations). NOVENTI was able to come out on top against three other competitors and gain this project for itself because of NOVENTI’s experience and technical expertise. NOVENTI received the contract to carry out substantial parts of the e-prescription. Pharmacies still have authority over the necessary infrastructure, and the technical responsibility is with the Avoxa subsidiary, NGDA (Network Operating Company of German Pharmacists). All important actors in the healthcare industry will be included in this project that will include physicians, pharmacists, software companies, data centers, and insurance companies and can create an important foundation for establishing a Germany-wide e-prescription structure.

NOVENTI provided the initial version of the software in mid July of this year. Pilot operation of the projects will start in November in Baden-Württemberg. For the first time, physicians in this region will be able to issue electronic prescriptions. Initially, it will primarily be for “normal” template 16 prescriptions. Anesthetic prescriptions and medicinal substances will be progressively introduced. GERDA is to be implemented for the entire state of Baden-Wuerttemberg in February 2020.
