ScriptSwitch ®, from Optum ®, is the UK’s leading primary care prescribing support tool.
It is used in thousands of GP practices across the UK, and has been helping to improve patient care and deliver best practice prescribing for more than 10 years.
ScriptSwitch is approved for use in nearly two-thirds of NHS organisations and in 2014-15 helped save over £40 million. It delivered over 11 million cost-savings prescription switch message recommendations and over 28 million prescribing recommendations to improve the safety and quality of prescribing.
Comprised of three key elements, a content management tool, a prescriber message delivery system and an analytic data reporting system, ScriptSwitch is the comprehensive market leader in prescribing support, helping to provide succinct prescribing recommendations, based on local guidance and national recommendations, for healthcare workers at the point of prescribing.
A content management tool enables medicines management teams to author local prescribing recommendations more efficiently.
The justification for recommendations can be based upon any criteria deemed relevant by the local medicines management team, such as safety notices, clinical evidence or cost effectiveness. Recommendations may contain hyperlinks to resources such as clinical data, patient information leaflets, national guidelines or formulary lists and can be quickly and easily added, edited and disseminated to all prescribers within hours of CCG approval.
