To keep the pharmacy’s workflow running smoothly, PioneerRx pharmacies utilize the Print Queue within the dispensing system. Instead of printing each of a patient’s multiple prescription labels one at a time, the Print Queue gathers and stores each prescription at Intake, then prints all the labels at once when all the prescriptions are ready to be filled. The Queue will hold any problematic prescriptions (insufficient inventory, pending renewal, etc.) until they are reviewed and authorized.
Cathy Huie believes the Print Queue has made the workflow at Brame Huie Pharmacy much easier to manage. As the Pharmacist in Charge, Cathy aims to stay on top of fill requests. Instead of rushing to fill synchronized medications immediately after they are called in, the Print Queue allows the Brame Huie staff to fill them at their convenience. “We can process our sync patients to look ahead and see what the Print Queue shows us our low inventory items or other outstanding prescription issues,” Cathy explains. “The color-coded legend shows us if we have everything for that patient, if an item is out of stock, or any other situation that would delay the fill. Print Queue allows us to make sure that by the time we’re ready to process that patient’s prescription, everything is in order.” The Print Queue eliminates chaos from the workflow, and PioneerRx pharmacies enjoy the organization it brings to the fill process.
