As an independent pharmacy owner, finding ways to enhance your customer experience and grow your business is essential.

Otherwise, they can be time-consuming for your pharmacy. Fortunately, BestRx offers several features designed to help you automate your pharmacy deliveries.

DELIVERY UPDATES 3. Electronic Delivery Notifications

The BestRx Messaging Interface* enables you to send a variety of text and email alerts to patients. This includes automatic delivery updates, including tracking information. Plus, delivery messages can be sent automatically once a tracking number has been assigned in your system. This allows patients to easily track their prescription delivery, without having to call your pharmacy.

* Please note, the Messaging Interface is included in our Premium tier, or it can be added to the Standard and Basic tiers for a monthly fee.

ONLINE BILL PAY FOR PHARMACIES 4. Contactless, Online Payment Options

Using our integrated point-of-sale system, BestPOS, patients can pay for their prescriptions and over-the-counter purchases online using a convenient text-to-pay option. To initiate a remote payment, just click on the “Request Online Payment” button when ringing up a transaction. This will prompt the system to send an automated text message to the patient. The text will contain a link to review their order and access to a secure payment page. Then, when the payment has been submitted, the prescription status will be automatically updated in your system. Not only do online payments make deliveries even easier, but the feature is available at no cost to your pharmacy too.
