Tasks in pharmacy that are menial, yet crucially important, are always at risk for not being completed in a thorough and timely manner, thus raising the risk for potentially catastrophic results. With the introduction of automation to medication tray management, pharmacy can ensure that trays are fully and accurately stocked in a matter of minutes. Some of these systems also provide usage data, which can be leveraged to improve inventory turns.
The introduction of automation to medication tray management has been well received in pharmacy; users give stellar ratings to their vendors and most plan to expand the system within their facility. This market segment is projected to grow over the next few years as pharmacy endeavors to leverage technology to eliminate tedious, error-prone tasks.
