McKesson launches next-generation pharmacy management system

McKesson UK : 08 July, 2008  (New Product)
McKesson Pharmacy Systems (MPS) has launched its next-generation pharmacy management system EnterpriseRx which is a complete pharmacy management system that facilitates control over the entire prescription filling process while simultaneously providing a solution for many common administration and management responsibilities.
The web-based system’s innovative features empower pharmacies to seamlessly adjust to industry shifts, confidently deliver patient care, and consistently measure business results.

EnterpriseRx, a centrally hosted pharmacy management system built from the ground up, was designed by pharmacists with real-world experience. “Leveraging a modern architecture to respond quickly to industry and regulatory changes, rather than embedded legacy code, EnterpriseRx allows our customers to adapt to a dynamic marketplace. It can also serve as a platform for facilitating new or third-party technologies into the pharmacy,” explained Scott Bagwell, senior vice president of sales and marketing for MPS.

With improving Patient safety as a key goal, the EnterpriseRx designers wanted to enable pharmacists to consistently provide accurate and complete pharmacy care. Therefore, the EnterpriseRx pharmacy workflow is designed to allocate queue-based activities on the roles of the pharmacist and technician, and can adjust with the changing needs of the business. With built-in accuracy scans, real-time communication, and defined user permissions, EnterpriseRx fine-tunes performance without compromising quality. Furthermore, with anywhere/anytime access, a pharmacist working remotely can log into the system during peak hours to perform work ‘virtually’ on behalf of the store, reducing the backlog for those on-site.

As a centrally hosted (ASP-based) model, EnterpriseRx centralizes databases (such as patient, prescriber, third-party, product, and so on), reporting, pricing, and drug updates, providing independents with the operational control, visibility, and support needed to help reduce costs and streamline administrative tasks.

Carlos Tami, president of Q Pharmacy in Texas, an MPS beta customer, stated: “We made a strategic decision at the start to find a solution that supported a personalised-care pharmacy model. We wanted scalability and access to the system from anywhere at anytime, as well as a low-cost IT infrastructure and great support - we found it all with EnterpriseRx.”
