Cegedim Rx, a leading provider of dispensary management systems in the UK, has reported 149 new installations of its flagship Pharmacy Manager system across the UK during the last financial year.

The company says that Pharmacy Manager is now deployed at over 2,100 independent, regional and national chain pharmacies, reaffirming its position as the UK’s market-leading dispensary management system for Windows, and taking its UK market share to around 20% of the total pharmacy market.

Simon Driver, Managing Director of Cegedim Rx, said: "Our continued sales growth and company success is due to Cegedim Rx’s firm commitment to innovation and quality, both in terms of strategic product development and superior customer support offered by our employees.

"We are constantly developing Pharmacy Manager to deliver additional benefits to pharmacists, their staff and patients. The system will shortly enable pharmacists to fully embrace the future requirements of both the National Programme for IT such as ETP as well as the Pharmacist’s new contract."

According to Cegedim Rx, Pharmacy Manager’s intuitive functionality and reliability are key reasons behind its popularity with pharmacies across all of the UK. Core features such as automatic stock control, electronic fortnightly product file updates and fully automated repeat prescription management have successfully streamlined pharmacy business operations.

Knowledge Base has also been added to all Pharmacy Manager systems as a no-cost upgrade – a service which is unique to Cegedim Rx. Knowledge base is a comprehensive drug and medical information system which is playing an important role in giving patients greater access to medical information and enabling them to make more informed decisions about their health and medication in conjunction with their pharmacist.

The system also contains valuable up-to-date information from the EMC and World Health Organisation, giving pharmacists access to the latest clinical news updates and allowing them to pass this knowledge on to their patients, thereby providing the most comprehensive level of care possible.
