This module monitors the inventory and allows the user to
perform all the standard inventory functions. The system
allows for the purchase of inventory in bulk and then breaking
down of this inventory into smaller packing sizes for resale.
Both packing sizes share the same item code in the master
file and are differentiated by their packing sizes. All
transactions are on-line and the inventory files are updated
as the transactions occur. All transactions are captured
at the point of entry and updated to the relevant modules.
For example, a purchase that is received is updated to the
inventory module and the accounting module, hence reducing
data entry and transcriptional errors.
This module handles the accounting for an entire store.
This module is integrated with the inventory and POS modules.
Transactions entered in the inventory and POS modules are
automatically posted to the accounting module. The accounting
module allows for several financial periods to be created
and maintained on-line, which gives the user flexibility
to check on previous years accounts when needed. Financial
reports such as the Balance Sheet, Trial Balance and the
P&L can be extracted on an ad-hoc basis.
Other than the general reports provided for in each of the
modules, there are statutory reports that are generated
by the system to cater for the Malaysian government requirements.
These reports are generated from the transactions that occur
in the various modules. With this automated facility of
recording the transactions at the source, the pharmacy can
be assured that the records are current and up to date.
Sales of Processing
All cash sales in the pharmacy are entered in this module.
This module has the functionality of a regular cash register,
with the added feature of having all sales updated on-line
to the inventory. A cash drawer and scanner (optional) can
be connected to the PC. The sale of a controlled medicine
at the POS will cause the PC to automatically prompt the
user to enter the name and other relevant details of the
purchaser. The existence of possible drug interactions is
also highlighted to the user when a sale is being made.
Interaction between medicine being purchased and the patientsí
history (over the last six months, for regular customers)
This module captures information about a patient/customer.
All drug allergies, chronic illnesses and doctor information
is entered and then used to better service the customer.
With information on drug allergies and chronic illnesses
of patients, the pharmacy can then inform all patients suffering
from a particular illness on the availability of new drugs
or the recall of any drugs.
