INDUSTRY WATCH: May/June 2015
Health Business Systems has added a pharmacy service portal as an extension of its pharmacy management system. The portal is designed to engage patients at the point of service to improve outcomes and star ratings. Pharmacists are given quick access to review and update patient information on the fly through any existing PC, POS system, or mobile device and to determine a patient’s prescription status, e.g., which are in the process of being filled and which are in will-call ready for pickup.
The portal will tell pharmacists the prescriptions that are in process or ready for pickup. It can be used to update preferred contact method and pickup/signature capture. Pharmacists will also receive message alerts to discuss with the patient.
