How Will You Achieve Your Hospital Meds-to-Beds program goals this year?

Posted by Karen Deckard on Thu, Feb 07, 2019 @ 07:00 AM

Is a Meds-to-Beds bedside discharge program on your to-do list for 2019? For many organizations, implementing Meds-to-Beds will be high on the priority list this year as they strive to reduce re-admittance rates, increase patient compliance and satisfaction, and even boost outpatient pharmacy sales.

For many years, our EvolutionPOS and our EvolutionPOSV2 tablet have set the stage for Meds-to-Beds programs in organizations across the country. We've been happy to be able to help with so many different Meds-to-Beds Implementations.

But we've also learned that every implementation comes with its own unique set of challenges. Every organization operates just a little differently and for some, there are barriers to Meds-to-Beds implementation that might be a little bit difficult to surpass.

Pharmacies - Check Out Our List of The Newest Point-of-Sale Features

Posted by Mike Gross on Thu, Dec 28, 2017 @ 07:00 AM

It’s been a fantastic, but busy year here at RMS in 2017.  Not only did we have another incredible year bringing on a ton of new customers, but our development team has hyper focused on delivering some of the most innovative pharmacy point-of-sale features in the industry.  As the marketing guy for RMS, we advertise throughout the year announcing these new products and services, but rarely are they ever compiled in one location, so I want to change that. 

Our development team works with their heads down, toiling day after day fixing bugs, creating enhancements, and building out new features that our customers, new and old, enjoy year after year.  It’s high time we give them some kudos and highlight just some of their efforts, so here’s a short list of a few of the bigger projects they completed this year.

Credit Card Security in 2015

Posted by Brad Jones on Thu, Feb 12, 2015 @ 11:03 AM

It's hard to go a week or two these days without hearing news of another major data breach. These breaches cost businesses and consumers billions of dollars every year. The financial cost to businesses that were breached increased 9% in 2014 to $145 per stolen record. And this doesn't include the damage to reputation and the resulting loss of business. A data breach is something you simply can't afford. With this in mind, I'm going to explain changes you will be seeing in 2015 with regard to credit card processing that will help protect your business and your customers.

Modern solutions for your independent pharmacy

Posted by Karen Deckard on Thu, Dec 12, 2013 @ 08:00 AM

Today's independent pharmacy is much different that the mom and pop pharmacy of days past.  Competition, patients, insurance companies, and health care have all changed the pharmacy landscape.  And, as an independent pharmacy, you have to continue to change the way you do business to stay ahead of the game.  As I was once told, "No change, no change."  So what things can you do to impact change in your pharmacy?  Certainly modernizing it can make a big impact on customer perception, and more importantly, the efficiency of your staff and store.

Why the sunset of Windows XP matters to your independent pharmacy

Posted by Karen Deckard on Thu, Oct 10, 2013 @ 12:11 PM

In the years that I’ve worked at RMS, I’ve come to realize that there aren’t many people who understand deadlines better than owners, managers and staff of independent and institutional pharmacies.  I also know that the last thing any of you want to read in this blog is that there’s something else that you have to put on your to do list.  But as the final months of 2013 come into focus, it’s time to start looking ahead to an important change in 2014.

PCI Compliant - Are you at risk to lose Mastercard/Visa capability?

Posted by Chris Gage on Thu, Mar 21, 2013 @ 08:00 AM

We often get calls from customers asking “Am I PCI compliant?”  The only answer RMS or any technology provider can truly provide is,  “ We don’t know”.  PCI Compliance encompasses more than the solutions we provide.  Of course, our POS products meet the requirements of The Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) which is the global security standard created by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), but there are many more requirements to PCI compliance that only you can control.

PCI Compliance

Posted by Brad Jones on Fri, Jul 20, 2012 @ 11:52 AM

Somehow it seems that every time we get ahead of the curve, a new regulation is lurking around the corner, requiring new policies & procedures, lots of research and mountains of paperwork. In the pharmacy industry, dealing with different compliance laws is a daily occurrence. Every sale a store makes has to meet all kinds of different criteria to satisfy numerous regulations. This means that your point-of sale system can be a major factor in maintaining the certifications necessary to run a successful pharmacy. HIPAA, Signature Logs, Medicare regulations and FSA certifications have daunted pharmacy owners for years. One of the newest issues facing us is PCI Compliance.
