The Electronic Prescription tool went live on April 18, 2011 at Dr. Gama Pinto Eye Center in Lisbon, Portugal. This product is available for all outpatient appointments at the facility.
Dr. Gama Pinto Eye Center is a state owned healthcare facility, which was established in 1891. Dedicated to ophthalmology since its very beginning, it was the first school offering this specialty in Portugal. It is also the oldest ophthalmology school in Western Europe.
The future will involve the computerization of all departments of the Eye Center with the implementation of ALERT® INPATIENT and ALERT® ORIS for Inpatient and the Operating Room, respectively.
