Key Findings of the Study

Europe Pharmacy Automation Market

Growing need to minimize medication errors is expected to drive the market's growth rate

The pressing need to minimize medication errors is underscored by the fact that medical errors are a leading cause of death worldwide, resulting in increased hospitalizations. Medication errors encompass various types, from prescription and dispensing errors to administration and transcription mistakes. These errors can occur due to factors such as poor communication between doctors and pharmacists, inadequate storage practices, and label-related misunderstandings. Dispensing errors, in particular, involve deviations from the prescription order, including incorrect doses, drugs, or labeling. In a pharmacy processing 250 prescriptions daily, an average of 4 errors occur daily, contributing to an estimated 51.5 million errors annually out of 3 billion prescriptions filled nationally.
