SANSO SOBERATS, Félix José; VERGARA FABIAN, Eduardo; PEREZ PENA, Julián  and  HERNANDEZ PEREZ, Aidelís. Propuesta de modelo para la prescripción de medicamentos controlados por tarjeta. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2000, vol.16, n.4, pp.322-328. ISSN 0864-2125.

The delivery of drugs to patients (mainly for the treatment of non-communicable chronic diseases) is among the aspects included in the National Drug Program. To register a control card in the pharmacy, the prescriber issues a certificate with the necessary data required by the program. At present it is used the form 53-63, which was originally utilized for medical certificates. In order to design a form that adapts to the current requirements for prescription, we studied the National Drug Program (1998), the Program for the Rational Use of Drugs (1999) and other documents related to drug control. A proposal was made that besides meeting the needs of information of the National Drug Program strictly, is designed in such a way that only requires half of the paper that was used up to now in the medical certificate. Approximately 1 500 000 patients have been prescribed this year some of the drugs sold under the control card system. The use of the proposed form just on account of paper will cause a saving of USD 3 300 in the first year, USD 16 500 in the fifth year and USD 33 000 in the tenth year. In addition to standardize the information that is exchanged in connection with this national program, the use of this form makes easy the scientific research related to the prescription of these drugs
