A system, apparatus, and method for providing an automated translation engine for translating a prescription into a standardized format is generally disclosed. More particularly, embodiments described in this disclosure relate to a system, apparatus, and method for automatically receiving a prescription form, analyzing information provided on the prescription form, and translating the information into a standardized form that details medication information including medication administration directions that are easy for a reader to understand.


The method and system allow a user to launch a client application on an web-enabled device and subsequently to navigate to an image source screen within the client application. After receiving an image source selection from the user, the client application retrieves images from the selected image source. The client application displays the retrieved images available for printing to a user, and in response to receiving a selection of an image, the client application transmits the image to a proprietary server. Moreover, upon receiving print order information, the client application additionally executes a location awareness application that determines a current location of the web-enabled device and subsequently, determines a proximal retail store to the current location of the web-enabled device. Thereafter, the remote printing system creates and transmits a print order that includes the selected image to the retail store for pickup.

Methods, systems, and apparatus are disclosed to notify and route a customer to a prescription pickup location. A communication device detects the proximity of a prescription customer to an associated pharmacy location. The customer is then notified when the prescription is available at the pharmacy location based on identifying customer information and the location information. Once the pharmacy location is detected, the communication device sends the identifying customer information and the location information to a pharmacy computing device. The communication device then displays a notification that a prescription is available for the prescription customer at the pharmacy based on a determination made by the pharmacy computing device using the location information and the identification information. In addition, the communication device can display a map of the pickup location, various prompts to the customer to establish payment and/or to determine whether the customer has questions for pharmacy staff.
