Many schools of pharmacy use a proprietary PMR system during "dispensing" classes and, while the generosity of the supplier is appreciated, the systems often present problems in that, generally, they are not technically suited for use with a relatively large group of students or indeed as a teaching resource.

Over the last year CoAcS have developed a PMR system that, while designed as a commercial product for use in the community pharmacy, has also been specifically designed for use with student groups. This element of design has taken into account both the technical and educational requirements of a teaching system.

From a technical point of view, ePMRx, when used as a teaching resource, is driven from a SQL database that allows teaching staff to distribute prescriptions to individual students and record student activities with a minimum of effort.
