Classification of care


Problem as starting point for therapy choice

Prescriptor is fully integrated in the physician's clinical practice system, the starting point being the patient, rather than the prescription. The patient's problem or disorder is coded and recorded in the EHR (electronic health record). When a physician decides to prescribe a treatment, Prescriptor shows medicinal and non-medicinal treatment options that based - among others - on the health-care classification code.

General practitioners use the International Classification of Primary Care (ICPC) for this. For specialists, there is the option of using ICD-10 as a starting point. Other classifications can be added in Prescriptor as needed.
