Ross Bridge Pharmacy is not the only pharmacy to see these great results. The pharmacies that use Digital Pharmacist have seen similar success with their New Patient (Transfer) button on their healthsite. 

In fact, every month, Digital Pharmacist helps independent pharmacies attract over 1,000 new transfers via the pharmacy’s healthsite “New Patient” function.
