St. George Ancaster Pharmacy
"Prior to using the narcotic reconciliation tool, we were completing reconciliations manually. The process would typically take us 2-3 days including the time it takes to count the narcotics and the time it takes for all discrepancies to be investigated. We looked for another way to reconcile due to the headache that it had been causing us to reconcile.
We have now been using the tool for 1 year and our favorite aspects are that everything is in one final report and the support team helps walk you through the process at each step of the way.
It still takes 1 day working on and off to count the narcotics but the reconciliation portion is now completed in as little as 15 minutes. Using the tool has eliminated the need for us to track narcotics using cards and logging things the way we used to have to.
I have already recommended the tool to one of my friends in the community."
-Khayrat Saad, Pharmacy Owner & Manager
Continental Pharmacy, Vancouver B.C.
"Before we began using your tool we would print off all of the purchasing and dispensing reports and manually match what has been purchased, dispensed and on hand in order to reconcile the narcotics. As the pharmacy is still quite new, reconciling without the tool was taking about 2 hours with a small portion of narcotics. We were looking for a better solution in order make the process more efficient.
We have used the tool for 1 year now and it has helped neatly organize everything and provide a final report that summarizes our reconciliation. Our reconciliation has gone from taking 2 hours to now taking only 45 minutes to complete.
My favorite aspect of the tool is the ability to upload purchase reports without the need to manually match what is purchased to what is dispensed and on hand. We have already recommended the tool to our other store location."
-Ada Lee, Pharmacy Manager
Parkdale Community Pharmacy, Toronto
"I like how iApotheca calls to followup on how the reconciliation process is going and provides help with getting through any discrepancies that come up.
We reconcile one third of our narcotics every 30 days and a reconciliation only takes us 1 and 1/2 hours now using the tool, which includes the time it takes to count the inventory.
My favourite aspect of the tool is how it compiles reports together that help you visualize your reconciliation and investigate any discrepancies that exist.
I would definitely recommend this tool to other pharmacies."
-Tiago Paulino, Pharmacy Techniican
Frequently Asked Questions

Why buy from iApotheca Healthcare? What makes us so special?
iApotheca knows pharmacists! We've spent several years working closely with pharmacists in all kinds of work settings to design tools to make your life easier! Our products are geared toward compliance while saving time and money and increasing pharmacy revenue.

Do I have to sign a long-term contract?
No way! We offer month to month and annual payment options with no long term contracts and no cancellation fees.
Narcotics Reconciliation is not my favourite thing. What happens if I put this off?
If your reconciliations have many unexplained discrepancies or they are not completed at regular intervals, you run the risk of breaking provincial, state and/or federal regulations depending on where you are located. When reconciliations are completed more regularly, less discrepancies arise and therefore make the process go much faster.
Will it work with my wholesaler and dispensing software?
We recognize the majority of the leading wholesalers and dispensing software reports and data sources. Please contact us to ask whether we recognize yours. In the event that we do not currently recognize yours, chances are we often can within a matter of a week or two.
How is the tool different from reconciling using your dispensing software and perpetual inventory system?
Perpetual inventory systems allow you to measure and track what is on hand in the pharmacy. Narcotic reconciliations are performed to audit this system between the past and present to ensure that the perpetual inventory system matches what has been purchased, dispensed and destroyed over a period of time.
How secure is your platform?
The Narcotic Reconciliation Tool is both PIPEDA and HIPAA compliant and is secured with SSL and database-level encryption to protect all data hosted within it and during transmission.
