We do not use paper meds prescriptions any longer. When a doc prescribes meds, a doc can use this electronic system and complete an electronic prescription. Then a person can check any prescriptions on the net and when meds are needed at the pharmacy people can use this e-prescription system to give meds. It works very well.
I like it because I won’t lose the paper and by the time I get to the pharmacy its already waiting for me, I don’t have to wait for it.
Here is the US, there are electronic prescriptions available that are emailed to the pharmacy. The exceptions are controlled drugs like benzos, opiates, etc. Those still require a paper script.
