Canada Health Infoway is working with Health Canada, the provinces and territories, and industry stakeholders to create, operate and maintain a financially self-sustaining, multi-jurisdiction e-prescribing service, known as PrescribeIT®. This will be a single service that can be scaled for use across the country enabling prescribers to electronically transmit a prescription to a patient’s pharmacy of choice.
The pan-Canadian PrescribeIT® subsets provide a standardized way for systems to capture, store, retrieve and transmit related health information.
As of April 8June 18, 20192021, two three versions of PrescribeIT® are available on the Terminology Gateway.
More information about each of these releases can be found on the appropriate page from the left side menu.
General information about PrescribeIT® is on the About PrescribeIT® page.
