Independent Owner to Pharmacy Software Provider: History of Computer-Rx

Did you know Computer-Rx started from within an independent pharmacy?

The history of Computer-Rx has a very unique beginning. The company was founded in the early 1980s by Roger and Carol Warkentine; evolving from a hobby to a full time career choice.

Roger Warkentine, D.Ph., graduated from the University Of Oklahoma School Of Pharmacy in 1970. Shortly after, he began working for Star Pharmacy, a small regional chain of independent pharmacies. He later worked at Sheen Drug until he eventually purchased Hillcrest Drug in Oklahoma City. Like independent owners everywhere, Carol and Roger worked as a team to help their pharmacy succeed, although it was day to day at times.
