Speed and convenience — along with increased demand for contactless transactions —  are among the top benefits of prescription home deliveries. Still, for many pharmacies, the process of preparing a prescription for shipment is labor intensive. This negates the hope for speed and convenience and increases the risk of errors that can delay on-time deliveries.

The process can be simpler thanks to the PrimeSHIPPING™ module, accessible via the PrimeRx™ management system. PrimeSHIPPING™ links PrimeRx™ and a pharmacy's designated shipping software manager to automate and manage the shipping process. Through PrimeSHIPPING™, everything from the identification of prescriptions to be shipped to label generation to tracking capability is handled seamlessly and accurately. The net result is the ability to automate the shipping process and easily provide tracking information to patients.

Key features include:

  • Patient address information is selected within PrimeRx™ and exported to the pharmacy's designated shipping software manager for label generation.
  • The shipping software manager transmits tracking information back to PrimeRx™, which pharmacy staff can immediately access.
  • Pharmacy staff can flag a prescription for shipping and easily designate a preferred shipping company and delivery date. In addition, multiple prescriptions can be combined into a single order, and alternative addresses can be identified. 

You can flag an Rx for shipping using any of the following methods:

  • Flagging an Rx for shipping during Rx Entry
  • Flagging an Rx for shipping in Rx Entry/Rx History windows
  • Flagging an Rx for Delivery within the Edit RX window

PrimeSHIPPING™ integrates with UPS, FedEx and USPS (
