Welcome to PrescribeIT® Self-Service Partner Portal
Canada Health Infoway is working with Health Canada, the provinces and territories, and industry stakeholders to operate and maintain PrescribeIT®, a national e-prescribing service. PrescribeIT® enables prescribers to electronically transmit a prescription directly from an electronic medical record to the pharmacy management system of a patient’s pharmacy of choice.
PrescribeIT® self-service partner portal is a dedicated platform that serves as a repository of resource materials (functional specifications, integration requirements, etc.) and documentation for point of service (POS) vendors implementing PrescribeIT® in their solution.
