IVRRx™ - Interactive Voice Response

IVRRx™ is an interactive voice response solution that integrates with the Abacus Pharmacy management system and automates telephone call handling by routing refills into your pharmacy software. It provides customers and physicians with 24-hour access to pharmacy services.

IVRRx™ manages the pharmacy’s incoming calls, enhancing the pharmacy workflow and enabling pharmacists and staff to spend more time serving their patients. By reducing interruptions, IVRRx™allows pharmacy staff to increase the level of service they provide their patients while also being more productive.

Everyone who comes into contact with your pharmacy benefits from IVRRx™. Using IVRRx™, patients can order prescription refills, get basic pharmacy information or speak to the pharmacy staff for personal assistance. Physicians can order prescriptions, authorize refills or speak directly with the pharmacists. IVRRx™ even recognizes your regular and holiday hours so patients aren’t trying to come in for their prescriptions when you aren’t there.

The use of IVRRx™ services is quite prevalent in the healthcare industry. Because of the urgency of many situations that arise in this industry, it is necessary to facilitate response both quickly and efficiently allowing patients to refill their prescriptions 24/7 over the phone or on the internet.

IVRRx™ is a refill solution that manages your pharmacy's incoming phone calls. The IVRRx™ is designed to meet individual pharmacy needs based upon the features desired and your existing telephone equipment.
