PrimeRx™ Multiple Inventory Services

The PrimeRx™ Multiple Inventory management solution addresses a critical reality in today’s pharmacies: Drugs often have different pricing structures, depending on plan and pricing program requirements. This means a pharmacy must have a way of managing separate inventories from each source, while maintaining visibility into the overall inventory function.


Multiple Inventory provides that capability with a user-friendly solution that allows pharmacies to set up and manage distinct inventories, all within the PrimeRx™ operating system. This allows pharmacies to easily manage inventory sources, such as wholesalers, regarding activity for both retail patients and 340 patients.

 

For example, the solution allows a particular wholesaler to have several inventories associated with it, with each inventory “bucket” linked. This linkage allows the pharmacy to easily access the wholesaler’s overall drug activity.

 

In addition, pharmacies can now assign specific inventory sources to specific facilities, for both retail and 340B patients. If a patient is associated with a specific facility, the pharmacy can link the patient with that facility. This allows the appropriate inventory source to automatically appear during the data entry process.


Multiple Inventory capabilities include:

  • Ability to manage 340B inventory with proper physical counts and the ability to inventory drugs for recounting.
  • Ability to handle multiple 832 files.  This includes the ability to create different price structures for the same drug.
  • Ability to create purchase orders within each inventory bucket.
  • Ability to set 340B drug costs within a 340B inventory bucket.
  • Ability to manage cost individually within each inventory for the same drug.
  • Ability to manage separate price schedule by inventory for the same drug.
  • Ability to set inventory bucket “rules” by vendor.
  • Ability to set inventory bucket “rules” for each facility.
  • Ability to filter drugs within the drug search function by managed inventory or stock quantity, for each inventory.
  • Ability to customize inventory settings to accommodate a pharmacy’s preferences.
  • Ability to see all inventory sources for a specific drug, via an expanded inventory window within the PrimeRx™ drug profile.


Micro Merchant Systems developed the Multiple Inventory solution in response to direct requests from pharmacists. Pharmacists asked for a way to easily create and manage multiple inventories, but in a way that made sense, was easy to use, and added efficiency to daily workflows. Multiple Inventory provides that solution, with the same comprehensive functionality and user-friendly interface that pharmacies expect from the PrimeRx™ management system.
