The high rate of electronic prescribing, rising drug costs and patient copays increase the likelihood of prescriptions being abandoned in the pharmacy. Smart will-call tools can help pharmacies proactively contact the patients most likely to abandon their prescriptions, allowing the pharmacy to improve time savings, drug inventory management and, most importantly, patient outcomes.
University of Maryland Medical Center needed help to reduce the chances of busy pharmacy staff giving incorrect medication to patients. scripClip made a tremendous difference at the hospital system’s five outpatient pharmacies.
Thanks to collaborative development among Change Healthcare, InterLink AI, and a groundbreaking mutual customer, scripClip is easily added into the PMS functionality. With the simple click of a button on pharmacy workstation computers, personnel can check prescriptions into will-call and readily locate the right orders for the right patients at the point of sale.
scripClip helped St. Mary’s Medical Center expand its retail pharmacy services to the community and improve day-to-day workflows for staff in a way no other will-call solution could.
“We provide better care by embracing technology,” said Prosperity Drug Company owner, John Pugh, PharmD, RPh. He illustrates that scripClip® was a worthwhile investment for him because it not only improves productivity in his pharmacy, but customers also see and feel the difference.
Nebraska Medicine, health center pharmacy leader, is implementing a scripClip-integrated Central Fill solution to streamline the process of dispensing and packaging prescriptions, while alleviating the burden on outpatient pharmacy staff and affording more time to spend with patients.
Grove Park Pharmacy is one of, now, four Orange Cut Rate Drug Stores that got their start in South Carolina in 1934. Over nearly 90 years and three generations, the operation has grown, and the scripClip will-call automation system has become essential to their operation.
“Ask anyone on staff – of anything in the pharmacy, they’ll say, ‘don’t get rid of scripClip!’” said Maggy Lawson, Pharm.D., RPh, pharmacy manager at Kubat HealthCare in Beatrice, Nebraska.
Pharmacy customers and staff alike can benefit when pharmacies are equipped to provide more clinical services on site – saving patients an extra trip to the doctor, making it easier for them to get what they need at lower-cost sites of care, and generating more revenue in the pharmacy.
