MDScripts announces that system now dispenses and tracks medication samples handed out by physicians. Normally managed with a log sheet and clipboard, the MDScripts system now brings all of the pharmacy dispensing features to medication samples.
Theo Antoniou, president of Cranking Software, says "In most physician's practices, medication samples are dumped into a cabinet by pharmacy reps, and maybe tracked using a clipboard and sheet of paper. Very few track where the samples are going and how many are being distributed. Staff sometimes use the samples for friends and family."
Antoniou goes on to say, "Since the MDScripts system already dispenses repackaged medications, adding medication sample dispensing was an easy extension of the system. It's very similiar to physician dispensing except for the medication package quantities are different and the medications are free. With MDScripts, physicians can easily track their sample medication inventory levels, perform DUR's on samples, and automate sample ordering and supplies. We're seeing practices request these features for compliance issues and expect medication sample tracking to be more widely adopted."
The MDScripts medication sample tracking module can be used independently of repackaged medication dispensing. This means physicians in states where physician dispensing is not available can also use MDScripts for sample tracking. Because MDScripts tracks medication lot numbers, medications can be tracked down in the case of a product recall. Whether it's for patient safety or compliance reasons, the MDScripts medication sample tracking module will bring control to this area of physician's practices.
