A pilot project on dispensing medicines by QR code is being implemented in Kazakhstan

The Ministry of Health together with the Ministry of Digital Development, Innovation and Aerospace Industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan is implementing a pilot project on dispensing medicines by means of QR code identification, when a patient, using a QR code in a mobile application, receives a medicine according to a prescription. The Minister of Health of the RK Azhar Giniyat told about it to the edition zakon.kz.

This pilot allows to ensure transparency at all stages of receiving services by citizens. At the same time, the function of sending out five types of SMS-notifications has been implemented to reduce corruption risks in the healthcare sector and to inform the population about the provided medical services and prevent additions:

  • about prescription writing within the framework of outpatient drug coverage, which includes the prescription number and the date of prescription of the drug;
  • on the patient’s discharge from the hospital with the necessary information;
  • about the date of the scheduled hospitalization;
  • the planned date of the routine checkup for pregnant women;
  • on changing the attachment to a medical organization, in order to exclude the attachment of a person without his/her notification.

In addition, there is a new eDensaulyq section in the eGov-mobile app that provides enhanced information on medical data:

  • donation status (lifetime),
  • electronic prescriptions,
  • information on medical withdrawals,
  • pregnancy registry,
  • Dispensary records,
  • facts of hospitalization,
  • immunization information,
  • information about the results of laboratory tests and clinical diagnostic services provided (doctor’s appointments, etc.),
  • sick leave,
  • information on hospitalization and provision of services by medical organizations,
  • information on attachment to a medical organization.

Thus, health care information is consolidated in one section and is available to the population. Citizens already have quick access to their medical data, which ensures transparency in the provision of medical services.
