Pharmacy Software Overview
What is Pharmacy Software?
Pharmacy Software makes communicating drug information easier for pharmacists and helps provide a more individualized experience for customers. Also, pharmacy management systems automate tasks related to the business of running a pharmacy. This may include inventory management, customer outreach (e.g. refill reminders), e-signature, point-of-sale, and other retail management type features.
Pharmacy software includes industry-specific capabilities like insurance verification or providing guidance to pharmacists. This may include suggesting replacement medications, dosage guidance, or high-risk patient assessment & care. Pharmacy software can integrate with EHR and medical practice management software to facilitate patient care.
