NHS Wales

NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership is using three ibml ImageTrac-Lite scanners to process in excess of 30 million pages a year, including prescriptions and various other health related documentation.

Millions of prescription forms are dispensed in Wales every year. Primary Care Services (PCS), part of the NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership (NWSSP), is the organization responsible for capturing data from every prescription form.

Prescription data is used to calculate the reimbursement due to community pharmacies, appliance contractors, dispensing doctors and GPs who personally administer medication for medicines and medical devices they dispense against National Health Service (NHS) prescriptions. The data is also used to provide management information to budget, plan for and manage the use of medicines in NHS Wales.
