The Future of Pharmacy is Here…and it’s in the Cloud
Posted on Apr 27, 2023
Now, it seems everything is migrating to “the cloud”, from personal photos to your pharmacy’s data. In fact, cloud-based solutions have become increasingly popular for individual users and businesses alike, because they offer many advantages. This includes:
- Larger storage capabilities and increased security.
- Added convenience and better access/ease of use.
- Efficient, automated processes and seamless integrations.
It’s become clear that cloud-based solutions are here to stay and will continue to shape the future of pharmacy. That’s why we continue to expand our software to include cloud-based options for pharmacies. That way, not only can you access vital information for one or multiple stores remotely, but patients will have more ways to engage with your pharmacy online, too.
Some of our innovative, cloud-based solutions include:
A cloud-based version of our award-winning pharmacy software.
For an additional monthly fee, you can upgrade your BestRx software to a cloud-based version instead. This enables you to access your pharmacy system on any Wi-Fi enabled device. That way, managing your store(s) is just a few clicks away, no matter where you are.
A web-based patient portal and mobile app, Your Local Pharmacy.
Your Local Pharmacy offers patients an easy way to manage their prescriptions online, using a convenient web portal and mobile app. Once enrolled, patients can request refills, view their refill status, and send messages to your store – all from their computer or mobile device. This not only creates a better experience for your patients, but it enables you to stay competitive with other pharmacies in your area. Plus, you won’t have to invest the time and resources to build a web portal or mobile app yourself!
Automatic, cloud-based backups.
Our HIPAA-compliant backup solution ensures your pharmacy data is always up-to-date and secure. Not only does offsite, cloud-based storage offer better security and easier recovery, but you don’t have to spend your time performing manual backups either. Instead, you can schedule backups to run automatically overnight, right from your BestRx software.
Central verification, RxTransfers and reporting.
Whether you own one or multiple stores, you can access vital pharmacy information remotely, using BestRx’s convenient online portal. This includes our Central Verification feature, which allows you to sync verification queues for your store(s) to the cloud-based portal. That way you can access and verify scripts for each location – without having to physically be at the store.* Plus, you can quickly transfer patient and prescription information between your stores too. The portal also provides access to several sales and operational reports, which can be generated for a single location, across multiple stores, or for an entire group. This way it’s easy to keep tabs on all your stores remotely.
*Central Verification can only be used in states that allow telepharmacy. Please check with your state board to determine if telepharmacy is permitted in your area.
The BestRx Client Portal.
We even make managing your BestRx account simple! Pharmacy owners use our complimentary Client Portal to view their BestRx account balance and pay their monthly invoice online. Plus, if you enroll in automatic bill pay through your ACH (bank) account, your copay vouchers will be deposited directly into your account as soon as they are available from the payer. That way you can save time managing your account AND get reimbursed faster.
