Thrifty White adds new technology to streamline prescription filling process

Thrifty White Drug Stores, an employee-owned pharmacy with 88 stores in six states, including a location in Bemidji, has selected Gold Standard/Elsevier, developer of drug information and medication management solutions, to license Alchemy as the new drug database and decision support solution for all of its pharmacy and telepharmacy dispensing systems.

Thrifty White emphasizes the use of technology to streamline the prescription filling process so the pharmacist is available to counsel and answer patients' questions. The company will use Alchemy's drug product database, drug decision support and patient education to enhance their drug dispensing system and provide drug information to pharmacists instantly.
