Pharmacy software conversions are a tough topic to understand and educate on, heavy on the data elements and processes.
Basically, a conversion happens in three steps.
- A third-party data conversion company downloads test data from your pharmacy software. They test to ensure it will convert and provide usable data for your change.
- Near the time of conversion, they perform a complete data pull from your current software and convert that to a workable data type for your new software.
- A system installer will travel to your pharmacy, install your new software and upload the data into your new system.
