‘Patient without electronic health record will receive medication hard’

Patients that their medical information not want to share via the National switch Point (LSP), the successor of the electronic patient dossier (EPD), get to the pharmacy is often difficult, or no medication.

The patients go to other than their own pharmacy, according to research from EenVandaag.

The recipes are written out by a doctor, dentist or specialist turn out for different pharmacists not sufficient to get the desired drugs. Sometimes rouse pharmacists the impression that people should be connected to the LSP for them medication can get.

The KNMP, the professional association for pharmacists, says in a reaction that the pharmacist assesses, but also the duty to continue to ask if a patient is not in the LSP state. “It can’t be that someone medication is refused, only because he is not in the LSP is included,” said KNMP chairman Gerben Small Nulent.

Also vZVZ, the administrator of the LSP, argues that the denial of medication not intended. “icipation and use of the LSP is voluntary for healthcare professionals and patients. The use of it is a tool for medication safety, not a goal in itself.”
