A lot of people leave a pharmacy and they throw away the instruction pamphlet, leaving them with no idea how to take the drug they’ve just purchased.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 26, 2015
Retail Management Solutions, an industry leader in POS systems that supplies small pharmacies with specialized point-of-sale software, has just partnered with VUCA Health in order to provide clients with a new feature, called MedsOnCue, which will help pharmacists educate their patients on prescription drug use. According to Mike Gross, the VP of Sales and Marketing at Retail Management Solutions, the new feature has been developed and tested, and pharmacies with POS systems from Retail Management Solutions have already begun implementing the new technology.
MedsOnCue works through QR codes, which are printed on the patient copies of receipts after a prescription drug is purchased, and the patient can then scan the QR code with a smartphone app or with a mobile device equipped with QR Code reading capabilities. After the code is scanned, the patient is immediately directed to a video, created by VUCA Health, which provides the patient with information about the specific prescription drug purchased.
The MedsOnCue videos are similar to prescription drug pamphlets typically provided by pharmacies, informing the patient about how to use specific drugs, any side effects that might occur, and when to seek immediate medical attention. Unlike traditional pamphlets, these videos provide important information in a viewer-friendly way, and the information can be accessed immediately, from any location, with the corresponding QR code.
“A lot of people leave a pharmacy and they throw away the instruction pamphlet, leaving them with no idea how to take the drug they’ve just purchased," Gross explains.
Retail Management Solutions is reportedly the first pharmacy POS system provider to incorporate QR code technology into its software, and as Gross states, the new feature would not have been possible without the company's new partnership with VUCA Health.
"Combining VUCA Health's videos and technology with our software, the MedsOnCue feature underscores the message of increased awareness for patient health and pharmacy efficiency," says Gross. "This technology accurately shows the value we bring to the both independent and outpatient pharmacy industry and what we do as a company.”
