|New Software to Automate Pricing||| Print ||
Rx-Net-Inc. now has a pricing system that will run on virtually any of the more popular pharmacy management systems. Auto-Rx-Net VSR (variable system ready) is a simple and efficient prescription-pricing software package that creates .XLS or .TXT files along with 55 predetermined pricing tables. According to Rx-Net President Michael Cannata, it easily downloads into the pharmacy's system with a minimum of software effort from the computer vendor.
Auto-Rx-Net VSR uses a database of more than 360,000 NDCs to establish product pricing, based on the pharmacy's ZIP code area. Once it's installed, the pharmacy can choose which retail segments - chains, mass merchandisers, or independents - that it wants to be competitive with. There are options to allow different pricing modalities and overrides. File downloads are automatically updated and run monthly from the company's secure server.
"As a pharmacist myself, I know the day-to-day demands of a busy pharmacy in a highly competitive market," says Cannata. "There are times when having to cancel and re-bill for third-party payments may not always get done. To have a system in place that gets the price right the first time allows for more timely payment, with none of the preedit service resends if you happen to under-bill. I encourage pharmacists to go to our Web site at www.rx-net-inc.com for a self-running demo."
