Pharmacies not only have to ensure they are giving a good service to their customers, but they must do better than competitors in their area. If there is a pharmacy that is doing a better job, most people are going to go there. Below are three ways you can improve your pharmacy’s performance using digital pharmacy software.
1. Efficient Inventory Management
Rather than having your pharmacists manually managing your inventory, you can allow them to do this work in a much faster way. So long as they enter the inventory when your system is first online, and they enter in any medication you are receiving, pharmacy software keeps track of when you are running low on stock.
2. Quick Prescription Processing
Prescriptions can take a long time to process when you are getting them on paper. You have to assess the handwriting of the doctor, verify their signature, and ensure the dosage is correct. The same is true of a printed prescription.
When you are using digital rx software, you can get prescriptions sent in directly by the doctor’s office into your system. That means all the relevant information is filled, you are 100 percent sure the prescription was made by the doctor or their staff, and you do not have to worry about the patient trying to do anything fraudulent.
3. Scanning Patient IDs
Patients must present identification when they are picking up their prescription. When you have software, you can easily scan their IDs into the system.
By having the ID in the system, you will not need to authenticate it each time. You will have the ID in the system, and you simply compare what they are showing you to the ID you have in your database.
By using digital pharmacy software, you will ensure your pharmacy is doing the absolute maximum to improve efficiency and ensure a positive experience for each patient that comes in to pick up their medication.
