QS/1 App for iPad Signature Capture
QS/1 has released eSigcap, an iPad app for signature capture. Once the app is installed and configured with the QS/1 pharmacy system, the iPad can collect prescription signatures wirelessly around the pharmacy.
“We see more pharmacists using iPads to help them better manage their time and resources,” says Ed Willet, QS/1 VP for national sales. “It was a natural fit to integrate the iPad into our pharmacy management systems.”
Connected to the store’s wireless network, the iPad lets pharmacy staff pull up medications filled and waiting for a patient signature. The app then syncs the signature back to the QS/1 system to keep on file. “Because of the iPad’s mobility, it’s ideal to help you collect signatures for patient counseling, prescription pickup, and to maintain controlled-substance logs,” Willet adds. “It can be used not only in the pharmacy drive-thru but also around your entire store.”
eSigcap requires a password-protected log-in for each staff member to connect, ensuring HIPAA compliance. The eSigcap app is available as a free download from the App Store on Apple’s iTunes.
