Main policy priority
MyPrescription is an app of the Public Health System of Andalusia (SSPA) allowing self-management and monitoring of the health plan and medication prescribed by a medical professional in a simple way. With MyPrescription patients can access a tab of the medication and the possibility of scheduling notices of the shots. In addition, MyPrescription offers a barcode reader to access all the information of a medication.
The aim of this twinning is to set up a pilot model in the adopters region that can be scaled up to the entire regional health system through the ProMIS@Campania network for the internationalization of the regional health system. This approach will help patients to improve adherence to prescriptions and to prevent adverse events. At the same time, the twinning will provide the opportunity to progress in the integration and interoperability of Campania information platform, SINFONIA, that represents a major step forward in the field of mHealth for the regional health system, in line with the commitments of the region towards the Ministry of Health.
It is expected that this ICT tool can impact on health outcomes as well as ignite the change management process to improve appropriateness of prescriptions or stimulate medication review.
