Pharmac has launched a new electronic version of the Pharmaceutical Schedule.
The new i-CD schedule also has links to Medsafe data sheets, information on prescribing trends and electronic forms for all products. It is a credit card-sized mini-CD.
The i-CD is designed for easy use in most desktop computers, and is compatible with all computers using Microsoft Windows software.
Other features include a full search facility, the ability for users to customise the software, statistics showing trends in prescribing and expenditure in each therapeutic group, and links to Medsafe data sheets on all subsidised drugs.
