Thirteen3 million people can use the cialis pharmacy system
Fredrik Linden, project coordinator of epSOS, announced that the 50mg viagra current solution will now be migrated towards an open source solution. Afterwards, the hope is to scale it up considerably. “At the moment, thirteen million people can use the system”, said Linden.
While many of the issues with technical interoperability have been solved, a number of open questions remain. Many of them are related to semantic interoperability: Requests that go from one country to another are being translated automatically, but this doesn’t always work.
Problem with translating electronic prescriptions
Anni Buhr from the 50mg viagra Danish National Board of eHealth pointed to the fact that translating electronic prescriptions remained difficult. Brand names of medications vary from Member State to Member State, and far from all pharmaceuticals are available everywhere in the EU. Translating dosages is also difficult, since doctors in different countries tend to document them differently.
“This means that in order to reach semantic interoperability in the field of medication, we need a common EU terminology for drugs”, said Buhr. She was very clear about the viagra propranodol fact that this is not a technical problem: “EpSOS cannot invent a drug terminology for Europe. We need some kind of government model for this.”
