Spartanburg, S.C. – October 26, 2005 – QS/1 releases Express Refills to shorten the online prescription refill process. Express Refills is included with a CornerDrugstore.com web site to increase patient satisfaction and pharmacy efficiency and productivity. Even pharmacies with their own web site not powered by CornerDrugstore can add Express Refills to their web site for online prescriptions.
With Express Refills, patients can quickly enter a prescription refill online without having to setup a personal account. With only minimal information, the refill is validated and verified to ensure patient safety and accuracy and queued up with other prescription refill requests in real-time. If a prescription refill request fails the validation test, the patient is immediately notified with a message explaining why their prescription could not be processed and what action is required.
"Express Refills has significantly increased the number of online prescription refill requests our pharmacy is receiving. Not only is this option quicker and more convenient for our customers, it increases pharmacy efficiency and accuracy when refilling prescriptions," states Tom Greco, Store Manager and Pharmacist in Charge of Hillsboro Pharmacy.
A CornerDrugstore web site also provides a custom web presence without adding any IT resources or hiring a web development company. Online shopping is also provided to allow the pharmacy an opportunity to generate a new revenue stream without adding any inventory or shelf space. In addition, CornerDrugstore offers pharmacy related healthcare content such as drug interaction tools, drug depletion tools, etc.
The pharmacy can customize their web site with their own unique web site address and store specific information that patients can bookmark for quick access. QS/1 provides the web site implementation, server and virus monitoring and web site hosting in multiple data centers to provide redundancy of networks, power and equipment, and data backup to keep pharmacy web sites running smoothly.
QS/1 also offers several marketing tools to help pharmacists encourage patients to visit their web site. One of the most effective tools available is a flyer printed with the pharmacy’s web address that is designed for the pharmacy to include in every new prescription bag to drive more pharmacy business.
Online prescription refills communicate directly with the QS/1 pharmacy management system to eliminate data entry, simplifying the prescription filling process and improving the workflow of the pharmacy.
