Start of e-prescriptions exchanging between Estonia and Portugal


Two countries will start the exchange of e-prescriptions already this year.

An agreement about the terms of exchange has been signed by Estonian Minister of Entrepreneurship and IT Rene Tammist and Portugal’s Health Minister Marta Temido.

Since January this year, Finnish patients started using a digital prescription issued in their home country also in pharmacies in Estonia.

In the second half of the year a similar opportunity will open up for Estonians in Finland.

The longer-term goal is to get e-prescriptions moving between all member states one day.
