Over the last few years, pharmacies have worked tirelessly to ensure patients have access to the medications, vaccines, and other services they need to stay well. In fact, the demand has been so overwhelming, many health care-related fields have experienced unprecedented staff turnover and burnout. As a result, staff shortages are a huge concern for many independent pharmacies as they prepare to face the notoriously busy cold and flu season. Trying to juggle a larger workload is not only difficult from an operational standpoint, but maintaining your own physical and mental wellbeing can be challenging as well. Fortunately, there may be tools and systems already in your pharmacy that can help. For example, here are three ways to use your BestRx software to achieve better work-life balance:
