QS/1 (Spartanburg, SC) recently launched its new Multi-Site Management (MSM) platform geared for growing pharmacy operations. MSM allows chain pharmacies to manage multiple store locations from a single site. MSM was formerly called Central Management System (CMS). The name change from CMS comes to avoid any confusion with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. The platform has been enhanced over its predecessor to include 3 new centralized databases. In the Central Prescriber Database, if the prescriber is not found in the NRx Pharmacy System, the user will have the option to search the MSM central database for that prescriber and add him or her with a keystroke. In the Central Drug Database, if the drug does not exist in the NRx Pharmacy System, the clinician can add it from the central database with minimal effort. Pharmacies will have access to the MSM drug database, including all of the drugs available from First Data Bank. In the Central Employee Security Database, employees are added and managed by a corporate user at MSM. If an existing employee is working at another location, he or she will have the ability to query the central database and be added as a user with the appropriate security access at the site without corporate disruption.
