Example 1. Prescribed branded medication is changed by another branded medication from the same VOS-cluster

This example shows a prescription that is made by brand name and the pharmacist changes the brand name for another brand name in the same VOS - Cluster.

  • After a GP visit, the patient Pia Peters is prescribed Amlor hard capsules daily for hypertension.
  • When reaching the pharmacy for dispense, the pharmacy does not have Amlor now but dispenses Amlodipin Sandoz instead.
  • It is possible to capture that the original prescription was Amlor but the dispense was Amlodipin Sandoz.
  • This could enable a medication summary that can for example group treatment lines, enabling the visualization of the prescription and related dispenses next to each other.
