Benefits of Pharmacy Automation
In the US alone, hospitals and pharmacies lose billions of dollars annually due to expired or unused drugs or medications. Keeping tabs on the inventory in hand can often prove to be a tedious and time-consuming task when done manually. Pharmacy automation can help overcome such challenges by keeping track of medicines that are unused or nearing expiry date. Also, pharmacy automation solutions are designed to provide real-time visibility into inventory, helping providers understand accurate inventory levels and medication purchases can be optimized for actual need. It also facilitates identifying medication that is unused and these can be immediately transferred to higher-use locations to prevent wastage.
Enhanced process efficiency
In pharmacy automation, automated prescription dispensing systems select and package medications and dispenses pills individually. In most cases, the medication is barcoded to ensure that the prescription and patients are mapped accurately. Robotic dispensers can also be handy in incorporating systems that drive workflow and expedite processes to enhance efficiencies, resulting in reduced costs in one comprehensive pharmacy solution.

Reducing the number of human touchpoints by leveraging pharmacy automation systems can help healthcare providers mitigate dosage errors and achieve complete inventory control, thereby ensuring complete patient safety.
