Using Mobile Tools to Improve Pharmacy Productivity eReport (EPUB 6.37 MB)
With the nearly universal use of smart phones and tablet computers, there is currently no guide that evaluates and recommends which apps and programs can best enhance pharmacist productivity and work flow in daily practice. Using Mobile Tools to Improve Pharmacy Productivity: An ASHP eReport offers a concise yet thorough information source for pharmacists (and other health professionals) seeking to utilize their mobile devices in their daily lives and workflow. The groundswell of electronic mobile devices in society has inevitably disrupted the work environment and has put a new perspective on how we use mobile tools in our work. This book will describe how mobile devices can be used to enhance multiple areas of productivity in the pharmacy environment, while also presenting case elements to illustrate these points.
Recommendations and analysis of currently available products are presented to help readers choose a product they may wish to utilize in their work or department. The subject matter is broken down to beginner and advanced material, to suit the differing technical knowledge sets that readers may have. This is enhanced by the ability to include images, links to apps and websites, and videos for user reference. While there are many online websites geared towards recommending apps for productivity, they are general and not well suited to the medical sphere. This eReport provides a pharmacy-specific solution for pharmacists to utilize as an ongoing resource.
