“Empowering Healthcare: The Evolving Landscape of Pharmacy Automation in Europe"

Pharmacy automation plays a vital role in modern healthcare by facilitating convenient delivery and distribution of medication in hospital and retail pharmacies. It significantly reduces medication errors that can occur during manual processes, such as missing medication or patient information, dispensing errors, prescription errors, and tracking therapy. Incorrect labeling and instructions are common errors that can be mitigated through automation. Implementing pharmacy automation systems is crucial for improving healthcare facilities, ensuring patient safety, and minimizing storage, inventory, usage, and retrieval errors.

According to Data Bridge Market Research, the Pharmacy Automation Market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 9.6% in the forecast period of 2023 to 2030.

“Growing need to minimize medication errors” 

In countries worldwide, medical errors are a leading cause of death and contribute to increased hospitalization rates. Medication errors encompass a range of types, including errors in the process of prescribing, dispensing, administering, transcribing, and across different healthcare settings. These errors can be influenced by various factors, such as poor coordination between healthcare providers and pharmacists, inadequate storage practices in pharmacies, and confusion arising from similar labeling.
