Anyone who works in a pharmacy for any length of time can probably tell you plenty of stories about running around frantically, doing everything they can to make sure prescriptions are being filled on time and that the patient for whom the prescription is notified that it is ready for them to come pick up. This is only one of the big things that a pharmacist deals with on a daily basis, not counting all the inventory work, ordering, and everything else that goes into running a pharmacy.
Did you know that it is quite simple thanks to new advancements in e prescribing software to not only make things easier for your own workflow thanks to automation, but also make things a lot more convenient for the customer? These new technologies can speed so many things up in your pharmacy and make everybody’s day a lot simpler.
How it Helps the Customer
These advancements in pharmaceutical technologies can be big help for everyone involved in the process, from the top pharmacist all the way down to the customer picking up their medicine.
Saves them time
These new pharmacy technologies can save the customer time, letting them know when their prescription is ready to be picked up so they can come get it when it is ready, instead of having to wait around in the pharmacy.
Saves them from confusion
This technology is able to tell the customer how much they can expect to pay for their medicine, when it will be ready, and where it can be picked up. This means the customer will know exactly when and where they should go pick up their medicine.
Ensures everything is accurate
When you fill a prescription using these new technologies, the software will subtract the amount of medicine filled from the total inventory in stock. This means you won’t have to go back and manually change all of the inventory numbers, as well as ensures that customers are receiving the right medicines, as well as the right amount of medicines.
These are just a few ways customers have grown to rely on the convenience that pharmacy automation software brings them behind the scenes. Why not do this in your own pharmacy by updating your systems as soon as you can?
