Electronic Prescribing And Medicines Administration Data Set - Medicines Administration

The Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration Data Sets are secondary use data sets which aim to re-purpose clinical and operational data concerning the prescribing and administration of medication in Health Care Providers in England who have a live Electronic Prescribing and Medication Administration system.

Overview

Introduction

The Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration Data Sets  are secondary use data sets which aim to re-purpose clinical and operational data concerning the prescribing and administration of medication in Health Care Providers  in England who have a live Electronic Prescribing and Medication Administration system.

The utilisation of secondary care PATIENT -level data supports improvements to health outcomes, and the Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration Data Sets  will be linked to other national data sets to provide enhanced intelligence to support:

  • safety and effectiveness

  • monitoring uptake of innovative medicine

  • pharmacovigilance

  • cost-effectiveness (pharmacoeconomics)

  • compliance with best practice and policy directives

  • antimicrobial stewardship

Data in scope of the Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration Data Sets  is from the Primary Electronic Prescribing and Medicine Administration system.  Therefore the data should not include activity where a separate system is used, for example for the delivery of certain cancer treatments (such as those covered by the Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapy Data Set), the prescribing and administration of specific medications such as Warfarin, and delivery of medications in specific care settings such as Intensive Care Units.

Care settings in scope of the Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration Data Sets  are:

Submission Information

Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration Data Sets  data for submission must be formatted into XML files as per the Technology Reference Update Distribution (TRUD)  page at:  NHS Data Model and Dictionary: DD XML Schemas.

The data sets should be extracted from the primary Electronic Prescribing and Medicine Administration system on a weekly basis, covering the previous seven days'ACTIVITY  for both prescribing and medicines administration. 

Data submissions are made to NHS Digital  using the Message Exchange for Social Care and Health (MESH) portal.

Further Guidance

Further guidance for the Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration Data Sets  is available at Interoperable Medicines Programme.
