If you are referring to a pharmacy technician, it is different in retail vs hospital.

Retail:
1. Preparing new prescription and refill requests for patients
2. Dispensing medication to patients per the prescription, or provider’s orders
3. Packing and labeling a prescribed medication
4. Processing insurance claims
5. Tracking inventory
6. Answering phone calls
7. Filling automated dispensing machines (depends on pharmacy)

Hospital:
1. Assist with preparing drugs
2. Fill prescriptions
3. Take inventory and order supplies
4. Fill out hospital paperwork.
5. Answering phone calls from other units of the hospital

Hello, if you’re talking about pharmacy technician, the law is now authorizing them to perform too many duties comparing to few years ago, now pharmacy technicians are, beside filling prescriptions, handling inventory, counting CII drugs, administering vaccines which is a huge change in the pharmacy business.
