ScriptSwitch (now Optum) is the leading provider of software designed to support GPs with patient safety information, drug switch recommendations and dosage optimisation information at the point of prescribing. It emerged from a small team working out of Warwick University who succeeded in turning their concept into a robust and scalable business. ScriptSwitch’s success in improving both patient safety and delivering cost-savings on prescribed drugs meant that it was used by more than 60% of UK Primary Care Organisations in 2010, a year in which annualised savings to the NHS exceeded £20 million.
