SharpRx® Pharmacy Management System

Touch the future of pharmacy. An uncluttered screen displays frequently used tasks and functions, and touchscreen capabilities aid quick navigation.

SharpRx represents the next generation of pharmacy management systems for independent pharmacies that need a faster system with fewer steps for easier prescription processing. SharpRx has touchscreen capabilities and includes built-in PMP reporting, eligibility checking, prior authorizations, drug images/imprints, warning labels, Remote Backup, MedGuides, POS software, IVR interface, rebate programs and clinical and pricing updates. Plus, unlike systems modified to include prescription synchronization, SharpRx was designed for it with a process that flows seamlessly. It combines efficiency and affordability into one easy-to-use system while QS/1 packs productivity and profitability into everything we do.

The Next Generation in Pharmacy Management

Designed with the busy pharmacist in mind, SharpRx helps you solve your pharmacy’s biggest challenges. It requires fewer steps and keystrokes than typical pharmacy management systems, and some pharmacists were able to easily fill prescriptions prior to training. SharpRx allows you to switch between functions quickly and easily without having to start over on a task. Built-in smart-search technology allows for keyword or partial-information searches for prescriber, patient, medication and more.

Productivity Tools

Designed with multiple time-saving features, SharpRx includes an easy-to-use label and form generator. Drag and drop to create custom labels and forms without the need for software support. Built-in compliance measures automatically alert you to any errors, and e-script information is clearly displayed and automatically sent to the Prescription Intake queue. SharpRx works with the printers, barcode readers and other equipment you already have in place and allows you to scan barcodes from any screen.

QS/1 Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP)

QS/1’s PMP works with PowerLine™ to extract controlled-substance prescription information from pharmacies’ PowerLine claims or the Rx Monitoring Log and submits it to the state agency within the required time frame to ensure pharmacies are compliant with state laws. This eliminates the need for staff to manually report to the state agency. Pharmacies are assigned an iManager account, and if the state provides error reports to QS/1, pharmacies can use iManager to review that information and the claims submitted. PMP currently reports for 46 states.
