Cegedim unveils evolving Pharmacy Manager PMR at this year’s Pharmacy Show

Enhancements include new user interface and intelligent dashboard developed in response to customer feedback

7th October 2019, NEC Birmingham: Cegedim RX, part of innovative healthcare technology and services company, Cegedim, is presenting the latest evolution of its flagship Pharmacy Manager PMR at The Pharmacy Show, Stand PC30, Sunday 6th & Monday 7th of October 2019. Developed in line with customers’ needs for greater automation and innovation, Pharmacy Manager’s enhancements will allow users to maximise new revenue opportunities and increase profitability without disruption to the business.

Pharmacy Manager has provided independent pharmacies as well as groups with industry leading functionality since early 1980, to help them not only dispense prescriptions safely, but also manage their stock and business more effectively. Over the years, Pharmacy Manager has continued to evolve with the changing pharmacy landscape, offering: repeat management, care home support and group management. It was the first system to receive full roll out approval for the electronic prescription service in England as well as e-MAS, AMS and CMS in Scotland, fast becoming the UK’s market leading PMR.

A number of new features introduced over this time have now become integral to the way in which pharmacies function today; as the pace of change in today’s world is getting faster, Cegedim has listened to its customers and evolved alongside.

Steve Bradley, Group Managing Director, Cegedim UK explains: “Today’s customers want their experience with technology to be simple, value adding and with real time outputs. We have worked hard to match these expectations alongside those of a rapidly changing NHS, where the Long Term Plan outlines a vision for ‘fully integrated community-based healthcare’ where pharmacists play a prominent role in multidisciplinary teams, aligned with new primary care networks.”

He continues: “We have embedded our commitment into a product experience goal that delivers products and solutions that precisely match our customer’s needs, enhance the UK healthcare systems, and facilitate improvements in patient care and outcomes."

Through a combination of customer feedback and in-house expertise, Cegedim’s Pharmacy Manager can now work smarter and harder, and puts pharmacies’ needs at the heart of the delivery model.
