Newfoundland and Labrador Pharmacy Network: Lessons Learned from the Implementation of a Provincial Drug Information System in Newfoundland & Labrador

The Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) Pharmacy Network is an on-line record of prescription drugs filled within the province. It is one of the key components of the provincial electronic health record (EHR). The purpose of this study was to examine the deployment and implementation of the NL Pharmacy Network in community pharmacies and identify potential barriers, facilitators and lessons learned that can be carried forward in further deployment and other EHR initiatives.
