As our population grows and continues to age, pharmacies need specific tools to help them serve the complex medication and reporting requirements of nearby nursing homes and assisted-living facilities. QS/1′s NRx Nursing Home module provides easy-to-use tools tailored specifically to help retail pharmacies increase productivity, efficiency and profitability while supporting the unique needs of these long term care environments.
Order Entry and Processing
QS/1′s NRx Nursing Home module delivers flexible order processing with demand fill and cycle fill options. Cycle fill automates the processing of routine medications and allows pharmacies to batch orders by facility, helping balance pharmacy workflow.
Easy to Learn and Use
QS/1′s Nursing Home Module is built directly into NRx without interfaces. This allows users to take advantage of the system’s windows-based look and feel, helping new or fill-in employees quickly get up to speed. Easy to recognize toolbar icons and drop-down menus speed up prescription workflow and eliminate the need to memorize function key operations. Wizards guide users step-by-step through infrequently used processes.
