The Ministry of Healthcare conducts the mechanism for the prevention of prescribing excessive amount of medicines.
With the new instrument, citizens will be able to check prescription in case doctor ordered 5 or more medicines. Mechanism will launch from July 16.
Doctor’s prescription will be checked according to criteria set by the Minister of Health. In case of non-compliance several times a year, the ministry will discuss about the responsibility of the doctors.
“We will give a reaction if two or more antibiotics are prescribed and are nonresistant to each other, or have the same action. However, I will explain that we do not write the recipe, this is the doctor’s prerogative. We suggest if order needs to be reviewed and return it to a sender,”- said Marina Darakhvelidze.
