This module allows The Compounder Lab 4 to interface with another dispensing system.
Currently, we have interfaces available for four dispensing systems: SpeedScript,
PioneerRx, ComputerRx and Rx30.
If you are looking at another dispensing system, we have documentation available
for the interface that the dispensing system provider can use to write their part
of the interface. (Note: there may be a cost from both PK Software and the other
pharmacy system in programming this interface.
The interface sends data from The Compounder Lab 4 to the other dispensing system
and the other dispensing system sends data back to The Compounder.
When a log is made, the interface sends log information such as Drug name, strength,
form, schedule, NDC, cost, AWP, lot number, quantity made to the other system. The
dispensing system then uses the data to add a drug or add inventory to be displayed
to the user.
When a drug is dispensed from the dispensing system, it sends data back to The Compounder
Lab to adjust inventory.
There is also an initial setup program that can send your log data between two dates
to the dispensing system. This is useful for when you first start using the interface.
In order to setup this interface, we need to schedule a time between the pharmacy,
PK Software and the other dispensing system. PK Software will need the IP address
of their server. Generally we will open a port on the firewall (3060, 3070) for
the data communications. The dispensing system, will need to know the IP address
of The Compounder data server.
Since this involves setup between PK Software, the dispensing system and the
pharmacy. This must be scheduled first. Please schedule ahead.
