What is pharmacy management?
Pharmacy management includes the management and coordination of all workflows in pharmacies, from the packaging and storage of medicines to the dispensing of medicines to patients. Targeted pharmacy management is intended to facilitate the day-to-day work in public pharmacies and central pharmacies and to simplify and accelerate the daily processes, and make them more efficient.
Pharmacy management can be improved with the help of certain software solutions and systems. These include, for example
- Order picking systems
- Packing systems
- Pharmacy robots
- Storage systems
- Inventory control software
- Supply chain tracking software
Why is pharmacy management important?
Pharmacy management is important because it can significantly relieve the workload of specialised staff in public pharmacies. Automated solutions can facilitate recurring tasks such as medication packaging, dispensing, storage and returns, leaving more time for other tasks. The process support reduces the administrative workload and you can concentrate fully on advising your patients.
Automated pharmacy management is also helpful in central pharmacies such as the supply of medicines in hospitals, as here the work processes are optimised, patient safety is increased and decisive time is saved in the administration of medicines. Our systems can also address individual requirements in the dispensing of medicines.
Since all data are displayed in the system of a corresponding pharmacy software, the management of stocks can be optimised in both types of pharmacies, the dispensing of medicines can be controlled and the delivery processes can be traced.
These are the advantages of efficient pharmacy management at a glance:
Time savings with automation
- Improved controlling with clear key figures
- Optimisation and management of stocks
- Control of drug expenditure and goods movements
- Accelerated flow of medicines
- Increased patient safety
- Reduced error rate in drug dispensing
- Increased ability to deliver
- More time for patient care
- Cost savings through inventory control
- Avoidance of waste
