Pharmacy Practice Management System (PPMS)

An electronic system that supports the provision of pharmacy patient care as defined through NAPRA standards of professional practice. A PPMS facilitates the recording, use and disclosure of electronic pharmacy records and reporting on these records.

Note: PPMS capabilities need not be embedded in a single, monolithic software program. PPMS functionality may be provided by a combination of software packages, tools and IT services that together function as a coherent system.
