Sejm passes e-prescriptions package

The Sejm on 1 March passed a legislative package related to e-prescriptions with almost unanimous support. It will help ease the implementation of the programme so that nationwide rollout can be completed by 1 January 2020. The legislation also contains several other changes, the most notable of which allows doctors to issue prescriptions based on an online consultation.

A trial of e-prescriptions is about to get underway in two cities, Siedlce (Mazowieckie voivodship) and Skierniewice (Lodzkie voivodship).
