Growing need to minimize medication errors drives the pharmacy automation market

Medication errors and dispensing errors are recognized as leading causes of hospital readmissions across the globe. A medication error can occur due to a variety of factors such as poor order communication between the physician and pharmacist, dangerous storage practices in pharmacies, and confusion arising out of the use of similar labels. Automated systems are considered to be one of the most efficient solutions to minimize these errors. In the past, the successful implementation of automated dispensing cabinets (ADCs) and automated dispensing machines (ADMs) in hospitals has led to a significant reduction in the number of dispensing and medication errors in hospitals. Thus, to minimize medication and dispensing errors, governments in several countries are promoting the use of automated dispensing and medication tools in pharmacies and hospitals. This is leading to the greater adoption of pharmacy automation systems.
