Pharmaceutical Database

Pharmaceutical Database

The Pharmaceutical Database is a part of the Kanta Services.

At the time of moving over to electronic prescriptions, patient record and pharmacy systems will adopt common information based on the Pharmaceutical Database, updated twice a month.

Organisations choosing to use electronic prescriptions can obtain the content and updates to The Pharmaceutical Database either through an intermediary of their choice or directly from Kela. Datasets identical in content with The Pharmaceutical Database may be available also from other sources which collect or otherwise acquire pharmaceutical information to be compiled and distributed further.
