Contribution to eHealth in SA

UCS TS’ Unisolv dispensing solution offers pharmacists and healthcare retail groups enhanced patient-care through comprehensive dispensing with integrated electronic remittance to medical aids.

Unisolv is focused on central management for Stock Master Records; Patient Master Records and History; Drug details, pricing, MMAP etc.; Doctor Master Records; Medical Aid Rules; Medical Aid Formularies and management; and Drug Utilisation Review (DUR).

Unisolv offers integrated modules to enable the management of the retail environment of the pharmacy site: Dolfin merchandising (for stock management) and Dolfin POS (for efficient sales transactions) work seamlessly together with Unisolv, offering real-time management of all stock and sales.

The Helix Application suite provides a paperless solution to manage digital dispensing, doctor script verification and chronic medication management.

Helix Rx produces a digital copy of the computer generated copy script at the dispensary, allowing digital patient sign-off and enabling save, recall and distribution of saved documents. Signed scripts are easily extracted from the UCS TS Helix cloud solution for medical aid audits and sharing of information.

Helix Chronic integrates seamlessly with Unisolv, and promotes communication and marketing by allowing the pharmacy to send SMS notifications for repeat scripts due, bulk SMS promotions and special events, etc.

Helix Dr scans and digitises the doctor’s original prescription, with effortless recall and distribution capability. Helix Dr simplifies verifying the doctor’s prescription at the point of dispensing, and the managing of drug registers and compiling audits.
