- Tom Modeen
Point of Care Systems Delivers a Secure and Efficient Solution for Pharmacy Checkout
Security and patient privacy are one of the focused concerns of a professional pharmacy practice. Integrating all the legal requirements associated with patient prescription pickup, HIPAA and secure bank card processing, Point of Care Systems delivers an all-in-one solution designed to maximize efficiency and meet all compliance standards.
Efficiency was a key design influence in our solution as the primary objective of all POCSRX system products is to optimize the patient experience in the pharmacy.
Our vendor partnership with Heartland Payment Systems provided the opportunity to combine the patient signature for prescription pickup, patient acknowledgement of the pharmacy HIPAA practices and secure transaction processing though Heartland’s out of scope EMV compliant “chip” card processing.

EMV is perhaps the hottest topic in general commerce right now, but the impending payment technology will impact the higher-ed space as well. Effective October 1, 2015, merchants – and universities – who have not taken the proper steps to accept EMV chip cards will be liable for fraudulent charges associated with counterfeit cards.
