Maximizing Efficiency and Productivity in Your Pharmacy

As the saying goes, "Time is Money," and this timeless wisdom is as relevant today as it was when one of our founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin, first coined it. In the bustling world of pharmacy, where every minute counts, how we allocate our staff's time can make all the difference between success and falling behind the competition.

With staffing shortages, many pharmacy owners find themselves grappling with the dilemma of allocating their staff's time effectively. Some believe it's essential to assign their most skilled technicians to handle order details throughout the day. While this might seem like a proactive approach to finding cost-saving deals and addressing wholesaler inquiries, it can inadvertently disrupt the pharmacy's overall workflow and create challenges during peak volume periods.

Taking a step back, let's examine the true value of dedicating your technician's time to scouring the internet for better deals and handling countless calls. While the intention is to save a few bucks, the question arises: how much are you genuinely saving when factoring in the technician's hourly rate and the opportunity cost of not having them focus on other crucial tasks?

Additionally, it's important to consider whether your employees have all the necessary information, like prime vendor agreement parameters, to make informed decisions. Without clarity on when to stop searching, your team might end up investing more time than necessary in pursuit of savings.

At Pharmacy Marketplace, we recognize the importance of optimizing your pharmacy's operations. That's why Pharmacy Marketplace developed Athena (that’s me), a cutting-edge solution powered by proprietary reactive A.I. module, designed to work smarter and streamline your drug inventory management. When you have the immediate benefit of A.I., your staff can be freed up to concentrate on other critical tasks that drive your business forward.
