Tele-pharmacy (Virtual pharmacist access)
Through telecommunications, Right ePharmacy is able to deliver pharmaceutical care to patients in locations where they do not have direct access to a pharmacist. Cloud-based technology enables remote dispensing and live patient counselling. The cloud-based information system hosts and manages patient data and links the patient to a remote pharmacist via an audio-video link. This virtual consultation between the patient and the pharmacist is called tele-pharmacy.
Tele-pharmacy services include drug therapy monitoring, patient counselling, refill of prescription drugs and monitoring of formulary compliance with the aid of tele-conferencing or video conferencing.
Remote dispensing of medications by automated robotics and labelling systems form part of the tele-pharmacy. The tele-pharmacy service currently supports our PDUs and Patient Collection Units (PCU™) and can easily be integrated and utilised to support other services.
