Automation in the Pharmacy: Prescriptions

e prescribing software

You probably know all about how automating the various tasks you have to perform every single day in your pharmacy job could benefit you and your co-workers, making everybody’s job a little easier.

While pharmacy automation software can go a long way in making things simple and efficient for not only the pharmacy’s staff as well as its customers, there is another area where this software can really shine: Filling prescription medications.

Think about it. There are several applications that e prescribing software can bring with it, helping make your day, along with that of your co-workers and patients, that much simpler.

What Can E-Prescribing Do For You?

There are a number of ways that pharmacies and doctor’s offices could be greatly benefited by working with prescription automation software. Here are just a few examples that anyone who works in a doctor’s office or a pharmacy should keep in mind when considering this great option:

·    Easily send prescriptions

Doctors want to be able to send prescription over to the pharmacy as quickly and as accurately as possible. With prescription automation software, doctors will be able to input patient and prescription information and have it sent over to the patient’s pharmacy with a few clicks of a button.

·    Reduce time spent on the phone

Instead of calling patients with prescription notices and refill reminders, you can have the software handle it for you with automated voice calls and SMS notifications to remind patients of their prescriptions. This frees up the time you would normally have to be calling up patients on the phone, allowing you to deal with other tasks.

·    Reduce time entering data

Enter your patient’s information and prescription records into the e-prescription database, and you will never have to enter it all again. It will be there for you, easily searchable and updated next time you need it.

As you can see, pharmacy automation can really go a long way in helping staff and patients work and receive their medicines in a quicker and more efficient fashion. It also helps to free up the staff a little more, so they can spend more time helping patients and less time messing with the phone and manually entering data.
