TIP: Some pharmacy software resources offer deep discounts for charitable pharmacies. Be sure to ask.
Many software programs are available that receive prescriptions and aid in dispensing medications for use in community pharmacies. These programs help manage inventory, workflow, accounts, and assist in record keeping. Beyond those necessary for running a pharmacy, there are features that are especially suited for a community charity pharmacy. Most systems are adaptable but may require creativity on the part of the pharmacist and the software provider to develop. Features that may be available or adapted involve labeling, patient records, counselling, reporting, and billing. See Dispensary of Hope Pharmacy Software Webinar.
