Pharmacy Signature Capture Pads & Pen Tablets

Pharmacy Signature Capture PadWe’ve all been to a pharmacy to pick up a prescription. What you may have noticed over the last 10 years is that more pharmacies are implementing digital signature capture pads. These pads allow customers and patients to digitally sign for their prescriptions. This creates less paperwork for the pharmacy and makes data easier to organize and manage. So what types of signature capture pads do pharmacies use?

One of the most common pads used today are those made by Topaz. Topaz signature capture pads are especially popular for use with pharmacies because they can be integrated into just about any system. This is due in part to the open architecture used by Topaz and the fact that developer kits are free and readily available.

Our line of Topaz signature capture pads are not only a hit with Pharmacies, but also with the medical industry in general. This is because Topaz signature pads can be used to put signatures in MS Word and Adobe PDF documents.

So what type of Topaz signature capture pad do most pharmacies use? There are 3 types of pads that seem to have become a huge hit.

  1. Standard Non-Inking Signature Pads – These are your basic signature pad. They are easy-to-use, capture the signature in seconds and are designed to last. The Topaz SigLite 1×5 is a good example of a standard non-inking signature pad.
  2. Self-Inking Signature Capture Pads – A self-inking signature pad is a pad that displays your signature as you sign the pad. This makes it easy for the customer to orientate where they are on the pad in relation to their signature. The SignatureGem 4×5 is a great example of a self-inking digital signature pad.
  3. LCD Backlit Signature Capture Pads – Backlit signature capture pads are often self inking. This makes the signature easy to see and are ideal for use in dark rooms. The SigLiteLCD 1×5 and the SignatureGem LCD 4X3 are great examples of LCD signature capture pads.

Ultimately the digital signature pad used will depend a lot on the signature pad size, durability, location and technology required by the pharmacy. You can find our entire selection of signature capture pads here.

    My name is Adam from Sunshine Pharmacy in Naples, Fl. We own 5 locations, and need a signature capture for each, maybe 2. We do not use point of sale, and are not interested in P.O.S. Can we simply connect these to a standard PC?

  2. Dave Says:

    Our signature capture pads can be integrated with POS systems or can be used by themselves. These tablets actually come with software that allows them to be easily integrated with Adobe Acrobat for use with PDF files and for use with Microsoft Word. Simply install the software and plug the tablet into the computer (via USB or standard serial port depending on the model). They are very easy to use and set up.
