To-do lists. We all have them. Personal and professional. We usually take great care in creating them with the idea that this list is how we finally get things done. Some of our items are practical like “finally catch up on the laundry” and some part of the bigger picture like “begin an inventory management process in my pharmacy.” But no matter what items your to-do list is comprised of, none of it matters if the execution is sloppy. If I put a load of laundry in the washer, and forget about it for a day, leaving it to mold away, I didn’t really do anything. I have to start all over again. Likewise, if you try to implement a new process or service in your pharmacy, without the proper tools, you might achieve an end result that forces you back to the drawing board.
Checking items off your to-do list might feel really good, but it’s even better when the result is something that you can be proud of. Sure, it may take more time and energy up front, but in the long run, time spent making sure something is right in the beginning is time saved many times over in the future. Luckily, you can rely on pharmacy business partners like your POS provider to help you prepare for major changes.
