Micro Merchants Systems has developed PrimeRx, an industry-leading pharmacy management software system designed specifically for today’s busy pharmacies nationwide. PrimeRx provides a comprehensive solution that encompasses complete customer relationship management control from a single platform, serving as the backbone of a pharmacy. It provides essential functions, including patient and provider intake, prescription processing, workflow management, claims processing, labeling & dispensing, inventory management, and patient record management. Prime Rx also offers unique capabilities for long-term pharmacies, compounding and specialty pharmacies, along with digital & mail-order pharmacies. PrimeRx is a total pharmacy dispensing software that enhances overall pharmacy productivity and customer relationship management.
The PrimeRx platform was developed in direct response to pharmacist needs. Pharmacists expressed the need for a user-friendly, technology-based solution to add efficiency to their work, automate key processes, and serve patients better. PrimeRx meets those requirements and regularly adds functionality to accommodate the changing needs of today's pharmacies. We regard PrimeRx as a continually evolving solution.
PrimeRx users will now have the ability to select a group of prescriptions and send them for remote signatures via text directly to the patient, thus allowing the patient to sign as acceptance of those prescriptions on their smartphones. Once the patient submits their signature, the signature is sent securely to the pharmacy to be saved in PrimeRx in real-time. Through Remote Signature Capture, a patient's prescription can be delivered, even if the patient is not available to sign for the package. Instead, an advance electronic signature request is sent to the individual, who then provides an electronic signature that is automatically transmitted back to the pharmacy and uploaded to the patient record.
Our new Remote Signature Capture capability reflects the reality of today's busy pharmacy, where deliveries have become customer expectations, but patients are not always able to be present when a delivery occurs. Pharmacies can be assured of capturing and recording required signatures, and patients can enjoy the flexibility of not having to be homebound, waiting for a prescription to be delivered.
PrimeRx from Micro Merchant Systems offers best-in-class capabilities to help combat fallout from conflicting medications. The system intuitively recognizes potential medication conflicts and alerts the pharmacist to the potential problem. Users can easily access and update patient records and capture critical notes and observations about patient wellbeing. This expanded capability allows pharmacists to make note of any non-prescription drugs or supplements a patient may be taking, which may conflict with prescribed medication. PrimeRx allows pharmacies to seamlessly transfer patient updates to other healthcare team members so that all prescribers will have this critical information.
Pharmacies have long recognized the need for immediate access to the National Drug Code (NDC) directory as a way to verify prescribed medications and list proper drug codes on all documentation. The NDC directory will be an integral part of the federal government's "supply chain certification" requirements. In addition, pharmacies must have access to the required FDA databases to validate trading partners' proper licensing and certification. PrimeRx offers seamless access to this information and allows pharmacy staff to quickly confirm and document all required information.
Drug Reference Guide: PrimeRx includes an interface to Clinical Pharmacology, a leading medical search engine and drug reference guide offered by Elsevier. Powered by ClinicalKey, the system integrates with the pharmacy's daily workflow to assist pharmacists in dispensing decisions. Key capabilities include:
PrimeRx also interfaces with PDR by ConnectiveRx, which provides seamless access to the Physicians' Desk Reference, a trusted reference source for all medical professionals
PrimeRx™ includes seamless access to adherence packaging providers, including RxSafe and TCGRx, which allow medications to be dispensed in patient-friendly containers, with user-friendly usage instructions.
PrimeRx includes a Prescriber Validation Service (PVS), which allows pharmacies to seamlessly verify the federal and state licensing credentials of a physician who prescribes a controlled substance. This is a required prerequisite for dispensing controlled substances, but PrimeRx goes beyond to also determine if a prescriber is listed on the Office of the Inspector General's List of Excluded Individuals or any state licensing exclusionary lists. This allows a pharmacist who may have a history of over-prescribing medications for elderly patients.
As important as technology may be in the battle against adverse drug reactions, it is no match for the power of one-on-one pharmacist/patient interactions. Pharmacists will continue to be on the front lines in helping patients understand their medications and sounding the alarm when an inappropriate or conflicting medication has been prescribed. But with technology to fall back on, pharmacists have an important ally in winning this fight. Our motto at Micro Merchant Systems is “software without limits,” which is our testament to our continual improvement and innovation. Get in touch with us today.
Pharmacies face an ongoing challenge to protect patient health information (PHI). While manual logs and handwritten prescriptions are being replaced by electronic records, opportunities still exist for PHI breaches to occur. Pharmacies can be especially vulnerable when receiving prescriptions from physicians, or when transmitting information to insurers.
PrimeRx™ helps pharmacies protect patient information with several important tools:
PrimeRx™ is an innovative, comprehensive pharmacy technology solution that offers important benefits including:
