It is late into the twenty first century. And by the time you have completed your quick reading of this note, a number of new technologies will have come on stream tonight. That is the nature of this century. Things are moving at a faster pace than ever before. If you are servicing the retail or wholesale (or both) industries, you will have noticed just how much quicker purchase orders need to be made and processed.
If you are servicing the health services sector, you will have experienced just how much urgent calls are being made for you to address your unit dose packaging requirements. As a retail or clinical pharmacist, it is incumbent upon you to make accurate packaging requests a reality at all times. It is also your responsibility to ensure that you have kept yourself well abreast with all the new technological breakthroughs, particularly in your sector the pharmaceutical sector, that have occurred over the years.
You are then placed in a position of further responsibility in accordingly advising the medical practitioners on your books what new products are available to help their practice perform better on behalf of their (and your) patients. Perhaps the time has come for all local retail pharmacists to stop referring to the people that visit them for service as their customers. While that is so true, perhaps it would be even better to now refer to them as your patients as well.
The system is not new; it has been around for several years. But rest assured, by the time you have had it installed to your business, it will have experienced several upgrades already. This is good and it is all in the best interest of your patients and your profit taking business.
