When Is It Time to Reinvest in Your Pharmacy Workflow Equipment?

Having an inefficient pharmacy workflow is imperative to the success of your business. An inefficient workflow doesn’t just waste time, it can waste valuable space, make your customers unhappy, resulting in prescription errors and decreasing your revenue by losing business. Fortunately there are steps you can take to determine if it is time to reinvest in your pharmacy equipment.

First, determine if your pharmacy staff is as efficient and accurate as it should be. Next, find out from your staff, if your current workflow efficiency is still working or what shortcuts they have taken to try and speed up processes. Lastly, evaluate if your pharmacy is utilizing outdated equipment. The pharmacy industry has vastly improved since filling prescriptions manually. An automated pharmacy workflow can fill prescriptions faster and with a lower error rate. By automating the script filling process, your pharmacy will have fewer medication errors, avoid cross-contamination, and have reduced customer wait times.

After TCGrx has determined what products are best for your needs, we are with you through the post implementation process.

We offer various levels of training for your staff both onsite and remotely, and are there to help guide your pharmacy through any questions before they will even occur, to help your launch process go as smoothly as possible.
