Enhancements to the Dispensing Workflow
We have enhanced the dispensing workflow, utilising barcode technology, allowing the user to perform a picking accuracy check when dispensing patient’s medication. In addition, an expiry date check will be carried out and alert the user of upcoming expiring medication so that they can take the appropriate action at the point of dispensing.
Pharmacy Manger will also provide clear visibility of what’s inside the bag following a scan of the bag label. It will also automatically update the supply date of the prescription including POM records kept electronically. Pharmacy Manager’s FMD integrated workflow works seamlessly alongside these enhancements, automatically performing a verification and decommission at the relevant touchpoints.
For pharmacies in England, when EPS prescriptions are handed out, the dispense notification is instantly sent for that prescription.
These enhancements speed up the dispensing process including handout, saving time for the whole pharmacy team and ultimately improves patient safety by reducing near miss records including the more common look-a-like sound-a-like errors. This also gives the pharmacist increased availability to focus on patient services and care.
A Modernised User Interface
We have modernised our user interface for every screen of Pharmacy Manager so that it is now more intuitive and you can easily navigate and use all the functionality available within the PMR.
A New Intelligent Dashboard
Designed to help your whole pharmacy team work smarter. The dashboard allows you to quickly see all of your key notifications and system alerts in one place. We have introduced dynamic tiles, with real time notifications, to give you an overview of key events as they are happening. Colour coded alerts highlight areas that need your attention so you can make informed decisions around how to prioritise your workload. We have also added a whole host of new features including a calendar and notes feature and added quick links to NHS services for easy access to these functions from within Pharmacy Manager.
We understand that our customers in each region have slightly different needs, that's why we have tailored our dashboards depending on your area.
