Prescription Labeling and Dispensing Software
using your own computer and medications
The Dispenser™13 is desktop computer software — not web
based — which means you control the data —
specifically designed for the labeling and dispensing of
prescription pharmaceutical agents for appropriately licensed
health professionals (physicians, nurse practitioners,
respiratory therapists). You supply the medications and our
software creates the label and monitors your inventory. You
do not purchase the medications from us!
The Dispenser™ runs on Windows
7 SP1 and higher and
Macintosh 10.8 and higher computers. Labels are
printed with a Dymo Labelwriter 400 or higher label printer
and the software comes pre-formatted for three different label
sizes to accommodate different prescription packaging. The
"Demo" and "Single User" versions only print to one size
label, that being the Dymo 30258 Diskette label (2-1/8" x
2-3/4"). The image below shows the patient entry screen. While the second image shows the prescription entry screen.
- The Patient database is derived from PracticeMaker®, our
flagship, awarding winning medical office management
- The integrated Help database assists with understanding
how to use the software. There is also an electronic manual
that uses FileMaker's "web viewer" and your default browser. In addition, we will give you one free hour of
online training (using iChat, Join.me, LogMeIn) to assist
you in getting the software set up properly (a $225 value).
- The user decides, using preset values, how many labels are
printed for each prescription before inventory is debited.
One label could go on the medication, one on the chart
(which the patient can sign) and a third on the invoice.
After a prescription is printed for the first time,
inventory is debited (or not depending on your "password

- The Dispenser™13 maintains strict inventory control and does
not allow low level passwords to alter inventory levels.
- There are a variety of reports available, including
inventory, patient prescription ledgers, drugs dispensed by
date and simple profit analysis. The current "on hand
inventory" list can be used to account for medications that
must be counted each day, such as narcotics.
- The Dispenser™ can be a standalone product using a
"runtime" version of FileMaker 13, or you can get a version that
requires FileMaker 13, thus allowing customization and file sharing.
The same Appointment Scheduler that is part of PracticeMaker®
and The Scheduler™ can now be added to The Dispenser™ giving
our software even more flexibility. This feature costs $600
To insure that prescriptions are printed to your LabelWriter
and reports to your default full-page printer, out SetPrinter
add-on feature will automatically switch your computer to the
proper printer before printing and then back to the default
printer ready for standard printing once again.
For those practices that dispense controlled medications, such as weight loss offices or pain management, The Dispenser™13
can create the upload file many states requires using the ASAP version
4.x. In Florida this is the E-FORCSE program and using version 4.1. In
South Carolina as of January 2014 they use version 4.2. The cost for
this feature is a one time fee of $599, and includes all testing and any
additional programming needed for compliance (a full version of
FileMaker Pro 13/14 is required in order to test and adapt the software
to your specific environment).
