Cegedim Healthcare Solutions wins the Independent Community Pharmacists’ Pharmacy Product of the Year 2021

Cegedim Healthcare Solutions is pleased to announce that the Pharmacy Manager PMR  has won Product of the Year in the Technology/IT category of the 2021 Independent Community Pharmacists’ Awards.  

The Pharmacy Product of the Year awards provide independent pharmacists in the UK with the opportunity to vote for the best products within the industry. Cegedim is honoured to have been recognised by independent pharmacists for its ongoing commitment to making Pharmacy Manager a stand-out, innovative technology product that drives tangible business benefit for community and retail pharmacy.

Pharmacy Manager has been instrumental in providing both independent and multi-site pharmacies in the UK with industry leading functionality since the early 1980’s. The solution has helped to dispense prescriptions safely and supported the effective management of pharmacy. With continuous adaptations to support evolving pharmacy dynamics, Pharmacy Manager has been enhanced through a combination of customer feedback and in-house experience to help deliver a smart and intuitive solution that drives operational efficiencies.

Throughout 2020 Pharmacy Manager has gone from strength to strength with regular releases that have delighted customers and helped further advance the product, including two market leading integrations, the Summary Care Record (SCR) to provide pharmacists with a full picture of a patient’s health and medication history and the NHS Prescription Tracker, enabling one-click access to prescription searches without leaving their PMR. The implementation of the Learning Zone resource library has also provided additional support for new Pharmacy Manager users with free bite-sized online video tutorials which proved integral in supporting both newly qualified and returning pharmacists during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Tracey Robertson, Pharmacy Product Director, Cegedim Healthcare Solutions comments, “We are incredibly proud that our customers voted for Pharmacy Manager as their Pharmacy Product of the Year. As a team we have worked closely with customers to understand their challenges, helping us reimagine how our Pharmacy solution should operate, how it can be more intuitive but above all, be more intelligent to drive tangible business value. I am truly humbled by the commitment shown by our customers and prospects who know they are on this journey with us, excited and enthused by the ongoing developments and keen to dedicate their precious time to participating in our Product Discovery.  It is only by working in partnership with our customers and walking in their shoes, that we will deliver a solution that genuinely changes the face of pharmacy.” 

“We have, and continue to, invest in Pharmacy Manager to ensure it meets the changing needs of our Pharmacy customers.  We are committed to helping pharmacists deliver the very best service to patients and to support the wider delivery of primary and community care. Being there to support this integral part of the NHS is important to us, and we will continue to strive to deliver the best products and services to facilitate this.  Winning Technology/IT Product of the Year is a fantastic recognition of the strides we made in 2020, but at Cegedim, we know we’ve simply scratched the surface, laying critical foundations for significant developments during 2021. To our customers and prospects, watch this space!”
