EOPYY doctors have until June to log on

Doctors who work with the National Organization for Healthcare Provision (EOPYY), Greece?s main primary healthcare provider, have until June 1 to sign up to the electronic prescription system that has been introduced to cut down on waste and fraud.

Sources told Kathimerini on Friday that the Health Ministry is set to drop plans to charge EOPYY doctors 1 euro for each prescription they write by hand instead of entering it on the electronic system, but it is expected to proceed with its intention of not covering the cost of any medicines that are not prescribed through the electronic program.

However, the Attica Pharmacists? Association complained yesterday that the e-prescription system has not been working properly for the last three weeks, after it was hacked.
