In most clinics, after a physician consult, medicines are dispensed by the assistant or patients are asked to go to the pharmacy/chemist to purchase their medicines. Sometimes medicines may not be in stock, and patients have to run from pillar to post to get the right medicines. Also pharmacists may not take the time to explain to the patient about dosage schedules, side effects, etc. Wouldn't it be convenient, if doctors are able to stock medicines and dispense medicines on their own. It would allow for more personalized attention and care. However the challenge is to design a system that is user friendly for the doctor and allows for easy spotting, recognizing, dispensing and maintaining the inventory. Also worth mentioning that the system should be appropriate for a small size clinic where space is a constraint and should be aesthetically pleasing.
