The Pharmacy Module is where the prescribed medications and drugs can be bought by patients. This module houses the necessary transactions and reports for the medicines that patients buy within the clinic’s pharmacy which is important when it comes to tracking of inventory, particularly medications.
This module has three primary users namely Head – Pharmacy, Pharmacist, and Pharmacy Inventory Custodian. Each of these users have their own role and privileges to ensure the clinic’s needs are met and fulfilled in order for them to deliver the utmost care for their patients. In this tutorial, we’ll discuss the users whose task is to oversee the entire clinic’s pharmacy department: Head – Pharmacy.
The one who processes point-of-sales transactions and pharmacy management is the clinic pharmacist. The POS transactions mainly focuses on producing invoices that reflects the pharmacy reports.
