ABSTRACT

Inappropriate use of medications can leads to cause potential implications on patient morbidity and mortality rate. In order to optimize medication use which leads to patient health condition as well as their healthcare expenditure, WHO has been planning by collaborating with different organizations and developed prescribing indicators. The indicators measure performance in three related areas of “prescribing practices, patient care, and facility-specific factors.”[The core drug use indicators have come to be recognized as “objective measures that can describe the drug use situation in a country, region or individual health facility.” The Performance of the health care providers related to the appropriate use of drugs can be accessed by analyzing the different prescribing indicators. The present study could serve as a frame work upon which further studies in prescription audit using prescribing indicators can be launched to investigate the scope for educational intervention and improvement in prescribing patterns.
