ScriptSwitch is the UK's leading provider of prescribing decision support, with 10 years experience of improving patient care and delivering cost savings

ScriptSwitch is installed in more than 7,500 GP practices, across over 160 NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS local health boards and NHS health boards throughout the United Kingdom.

ScriptSwitch is the UK’s leading prescribing decision support solution for healthcare professionals within the primary care sector. It is the only technology tool, compatible with all the major clinical systems, that releases savings at the point of prescribing.

With so many considerations and pressures placed upon the prescriber’s workload, ScriptSwitch delivers both national guidelines, local initiatives and formulary choices instantly, without the need to remember or locate the numerous sources of such information.

ScriptSwitch works at the point at which a drug is prescribed within your GP system and automatically displays a recommendation, if your tailored database finds a match. ScriptSwitch not only delivers recommendations for existing patient medications, it also supports decision making when initiating new treatments during a patient consultation.

The prescriber can then review the information within the window and choose an action – ‘Accept’, ‘Edit Original’ or ‘Prescribe Original’, therefore still ensuring the prescriber is in control of the clinical decision. Once selected your GP system automatically updates the details.

The combined effect of patient safety and a significant return on investment make for a compelling proposition; ScriptSwitch supports clinicians to deliver a world class service, optimising prescribing to deliver better health, better value and better care for patients.
