Proper stock management is essential for providing medicines to patients when and where they need them. This is especially important for people living with HIV because treatment is a lifelong commitment and adherence is critical to good outcomes. Pharmacists must be able to track, analyze, and manage stock information to prevent stock-outs, overstocks, and stock expiring on the shelf. Clinicians must be able to need to track dispensing of medications to ensure optimum patient care.
