Medication Tracking Systems

July 2020 - Vol.17 No. 7 - Page #24
The benefits of automating medication tracking cannot be overstated. From better inventory management to freeing pharmacy staff from chasing down missing medications, this automation delivers a significant return on investment. Unfortunately, it has yet to be widely adopted in pharmacy. As the vendors in this marketplace receive solid satisfaction ratings, we expect to see an increase in new system adoptions over the next few years while current users also look to expand their systems.

Hospital pharmacies enjoyed an increase in automated medication tracking adoptions this year; however, this automation has yet to benefit a majority of facilities. Most adoptions have occurred in large academic medical centers, while smaller facilities continue to track medications manually.

RxScan, Kit Check, PharmacyKeeper Carts, and Intelliguard continue to lead this marketplace. The ‘Other’ category reflects those facilities that rely on their PIS for medication tracking.
