The framework consists of four major parts: the prescriber, the transaction hub, the pharmacy and the patient. The prescribes updates the record of the patent with a new prescription or updates the old one after studying his records and then this is transmitted to the transaction hub.

This not only has efficiency advantages over the handwritten prescription but also makes the medical care more reliable and effective.
