Paperless Rx labeling trial on track
November 08, 2004
A 90-day field test of paperless labeling solutions is under way at 126 pharmacy sites. One tester, Thomson PDR, has improved its PDR On-Demand appliance, which consists of a small, bar-code-enabled, touch screen kiosk that is up dated daily with the latest product information. Etreby Computer Corp. has opted for a Web-based solution in the race to win PhRMA's backing for the paperless label system to reduce those pesky paper patient inserts. Regardless of which firm comes out ahead, the technology is not supposed to cost pharmacies.
