Reçetem: 140 Million Prescriptions!
Tiga Healthcare Technologies' Electronic Prescription System (Reçetem), serving in Türkiye since 2017, enables all prescriptions to be written electronically and prevents illegal operations such as fake prescriptions and fake reports.
In the first place, Reçetem System started by registering red and green prescriptions containing drugs and psychotropic drugs. In the next stage, orange prescriptions for hemophilia patients and purple prescriptions for other blood products were added to Renkli Reçete (Narcotic Prescription System). Finally, white prescriptions were also included in the system.
After the transition to Reçetem, the "Unlicensed and Off-label Drug Management System," in which doctors write foreign and off-label drug prescriptions, was also added. While more than 670 thousand patient reports have been entered into the system, the number of prescriptions written has exceeded 140 million.
1 Million Prescriptions Per Day
Meanwhile, Reçetem, where an average of 1 million prescriptions are written daily, prevents illegal activities such as fake prescriptions and reports. Patients cannot prescribe repeated prescriptions to different doctors and cannot obtain medication from other pharmacies before they run out of medication.
Before the system, the Provincial Directorate of Health made monthly checks of printed prescriptions at the end of the month. Thanks to Reçetem, instant control of inappropriate situations that develop during the month can be provided. The system ensures that the physicians prescribe the medicines in the correct dosage and that patients obtain the medication from the pharmacies in the proper dosage.
While the system allows doctors to easily see the red and green prescription drugs and the expiration dates of these drugs, it also prevents the loss of workforce and time spent by physicians for obtaining, delivering and tracking printed prescriptions. Being completely paperless, Reçetem also eliminates the economic loss caused by printed prescriptions.
