PHARMACY REVIEW2Pharmacy Review IntroductionThe Interview Results1.In my interview, I thought it best to interview the pharmacist and the pharmacy technician. The reason I chose to do both was the pharmacy technician does most of the computer work in the pharmacy. It has change a great deal over the years. The pharmacythey are employed at uses Connexus. This system allows the use of palm pilots. Most everything is done from the palms pilots such as: checking in orders, verifying the medication order,10-day returns, inventory, order special supplies, and printing of the label once the correct medication is scanned. The PC is used for the input of the prescription and inputting insurance information. The pharmacy also utilizes the use of the FAX machine for orders sent in from physicians. Although most orders can be put in directly through the computer using e-scribing for the pharmacist to fill, some physicians don’t have the technology, so a FAX is still utilized. Larger pharmacies use dispensers which is an automated machine that counts out the medication for the pharmacist, but thispharmacy still counts the medication by hand. The pharmacist says that it wouldn’t be cost effective for this pharmacy.
