Effectively and efficiently manage your pharmacy’s information needs with the drug purchase history reporting tools in McKesson Connect. Pre-built and customizable reports produce tailored and timely documentation to comply with all financial and drug supply chain security reporting requirements. Custom reporting features generate documentation for individual pharmacies or specified groups of pharmacies at the regional or national level.

Build reports with up to 28 months of purchasing history by product, account and other transaction variables. The reports store data for longer periods when required to support compliance needs such as traceability reporting to meet Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) requirements.

Create customized purchase history reports daily, weekly or by month. Receive electronic notifications when reports are ready to be viewed, printed, downloaded or shared. Templates of your most frequently used reports are maintained and easily run again on demand.

Reports are available in a variety of formats, including HTML, ASCII, Excel and PDF.

Predefined reports for your pharmacy’s business and compliance needs

McKesson Connect streamlines your reporting process by providing a variety of predefined—or standardized—report formats available for your compliance reporting needs. By using the standardized reporting features, your pharmacists and staff spend less time on paperwork and more time with patients and customers.

Available predefined reports include:

  • Quick Item Purchase History report shows invoice level, summary by account or summary across account for a particular item
  • Asset Management report supports customer drug inventory management efforts
    • High-Frequency Items report helps you flag items being purchased by your pharmacy at a higher-than-expected rate and where frequency of purchasing may need to be re-evaluated
    • Obsolete Inventory report provides you with a list of products that haven’t moved, giving you insight to which products can be removed and replaced from shelves
