Multidose dispensed drugs (MDD) is a machine-dispensed system packing drugs in unit-of-use disposable bags. MDD is still prescribed using paper and fax. There is now an ongoing national effort to introduce e- prescribing of MDD similar to ordinary e-prescriptions. In this paper, we analyse how some of the first GPs, nurses and pharmacists who started using the system in 2018 experienced the start-up. We found four factors affecting the transition. These were technical readiness; sufficient time to make the first medication list; appointed contact persons for support and questions; and, sufficient information and training in using the new system prior to start-up.

Keywords: Multidose dispensed drugs, e-prescribing, shared medication list
