To track medications accurately, make sure you have a reliable pharmacy printing solution. With the right devices, using barcode tracking in the pharmacy can be easy. Barcode tracking will reduce medication dispensing errors while improving pharmacy operations.
With automated prescription and medication tracking, you will be able to:
- Print legible prescription orders
- Encode patient information in barcodes to satisfy HIPAA regulations
- Have barcoded prescription labels that can be scanned anytime
Pharmacies need to produce high-quality labels for prescription orders, bottles, and unit close packaging to ensure patient safety while following HIPAA regulations. Thermal printers are a good tool to accomplish all of that. Printed barcode labels are scanned to immediately verify and record medication dispensing, as well as check the NDC number against the prescription order to ensure the correct medication in the correct dosage is administered to the correct patient.
Medication dispensing errors will be reduced with a pharmacy printing solution because printed labels will allow pharmacy staff to verify and record the medication dispensing process for each medication and patient. These printed labels will allow staff to manage the entire medication management process with mobile devices.
Automated prescription tracking in the pharmacy can be easy with the right combination of hardware, software, and supplies.
