A medical prescription is a written instruction by a physician to recommend and authorize a patient to purchase and use prescribed drugs and treatments. Prescribing errors can spread for a variety of reasons, such as lack of knowledge and skills among pharmacists and poor communication between nurses and doctors. Among medication errors, prescribing errors are one of the leading causes of concern for healthcare professionals across the globe. According to a 2018 report by the General Medical Council (GMC), in the UK, about 9%-15% of hospital patient medication orders report prescribing errors. Although they are rarely fatal, they can adversely affect patients’ health and disease management. In addition to being a threat to a patient's health, prescription errors are a common cause of legal and malpractice claims against physicians and healthcare professionals. Along with offering patients with a complete background medical history while prescribing, e-prescribing systems can further reduce errors by implementing an alert and warning system.

A stand-alone E prescription solution is an independent and single-entity solution for electronically prescribing medications to patients. It runs on a single-modal software through which doctors or physicians prescribe medication to patients on an electronic platform. Standalone E prescription apps are cheap and easy to install than integrated solutions. However, the stand-alone application may not have all the functions in the electronic prescription module linked to the EMR.

Based on Mode of Deployment, Web & Cloud Based Solution Dominates the E prescription Market:

Web and cloud based models offer improved performance and reliability by avoiding long deployment cycles.

Under this model, the provider offers customers individual cloud-based servers on subscription-based or pay-as-you-go pricing models. Community clouds are a recent trend in the cloud industry that caters to the specific needs of large communities, such as research communities, that can share their data and store it on a dedicated research cloud. This delivery method is the most popular in the industry because it reduces upfront costs and does not require any complicated installation or implementation. As a result, the market is witnessing a shift in e-prescribing solutions from on-premises to web-hosted deployments.
