The Next Generation in Pharmacy Management

Designed with the busy pharmacist in mind, SharpRx helps you solve your pharmacy’s biggest challenges. It requires fewer steps and keystrokes than typical pharmacy management systems, and some pharmacists were able to easily fill prescriptions prior to training. SharpRx allows you to switch between functions quickly and easily without having to start over on a task. Built-in smart-search technology allows for keyword or partial-information searches for prescriber, patient, medication and more.

Productivity Tools

Designed with multiple time-saving features, SharpRx includes an easy-to-use label and form generator. Drag and drop to create custom labels and forms without the need for software support. Built-in compliance measures automatically alert you to any errors, and e-script information is clearly displayed and automatically sent to the Prescription Intake queue. SharpRx works with the printers, barcode readers and other equipment you already have in place and allows you to scan barcodes from any screen.

QS/1 Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP)

QS/1’s PMP extracts controlled-substance prescription information from pharmacies’ PowerLine™ claims or the Rx Monitoring Log and submits it to the state agency within the required time frame to ensure pharmacies are compliant with state laws.

Pharmacies are assigned an iManager account, and if the state provides error reports to QS/1, pharmacies can use iManager to review that information and the claims submitted. PMP currently reports for 46 states.
