Abstract

Scotland's eHealth strategy promotes the use of information technology to 'improve communications across the healthcare team', which aligns with the quality strategy in placing the 'focus on outcomes and real benefits delivered rather than technologies.' The more recently published 2020 Workforce Vision envisages 'making more and better use of technology and facilities to increase access to services and improve efficiency', which was reinforced by the Prescription for Excellence and the Review of NHS Pharmaceutical Care of Patients in the Community in Scotland. Policies are supportive of ehealth in facilitating collaborative health and social care in providing integrated, person-centred, patient care enabling community pharmacy to offer extended and accessible services. This research aimed to explore and describe key stakeholders' perspectives on the implementation of ehealth policy in community pharmacy in Scotland.
