What are Prescribing Indicators Modules?
Prescribing indicator modules provides health professionals insights into their prescribing practices that are recognised as being high risk. Prescribing safety indicators have been developed and used internationally to identify patients who are at risk of harm through drug interactions or interaction between medications and a their medical condition.
In collaboration with clinical audit tool providers such as Dr Info and Mohio, practices are provided with monthly reports detailing patients who may be at risk from a selection from specific high risk prescribing practices. SIP provide suggestions for changes in practice. Practice teams decide how they want to address these within their practice environment to reduce risk of harm to patients.
