Reuters has made an attempt to take over Practice Resource Systems (PRS).
PRS is a privately owned information technology group and is rapidly expanding. It has caught Reuter’s eye due to its newly devised healthcare system, HealthPlus.
The pioneering system links doctors’ surgeries to local pharmacies. The patient can register with their chosen chemist and this eliminates the need to visit their GP for a repeat prescription.
Patients could also get advice from their pharmacist using a barcoded registration card.
