  40. 40. SERVICE • INTEGRITY • COMPASSION • RESPECT • EXCELLENCE Issues • Initial testing shows increased time taken to dispense – Due to iPharmacy issues • Doctors don’t always get the quantity right – Direct information to iPharmacy • SIG is not always correct – E.g. Spiriva inhalation capsules • iPharmacy (Stocca) will reject messages
  41. 41. SERVICE • INTEGRITY • COMPASSION • RESPECT • EXCELLENCE Lessons Learnt • Novel approach – Process could be more streamline – Preferable if eRx order could be dispensed straight from the eRx window – Potential full roll-out across network if successful • Testing, testing, testing… • Vlookups will be your best friend • Development/maintenance is a full-time job
