Overview

ePMRx is a Windows based pharmacy labelling and patient medication record system. Available as a single or multi user instance, running on PC workstations and connecting to a Microsoft SQL server database. Version also available for Educational Institutions.

PHARMACY LABELLING:

Standard features of labels generated by ePMRx:
The identity of the medicine
The identity of the patient
Directions for use
Any necessary cautionary or advisory warnings

Additional features of ePMRx:
Checks for drug interactions based on "Stockley’s Interactions" database.
Allows selection of cautionary and advisory labels.
Includes the option to print bilingual labels (e.g. English + Arabic).

PATIENT MEDICATION RECORDS:

The ePMRx system, while generating the label, creates a patient medication record (PMR) or references an existing record.
The advantages of having PMRs within the pharmacy include:
Improves the service that the patient receives.
Enables reference to medical history for drug interactions.
Encourages patient loyalty to the pharmacy.
