(ProNewsReport Editorial):- Albion, Indiana Aug 18, 2021 ( – Market Overview
Pharmacy automation plays a significant role in modern healthcare. It involves the mechanical processes of handling and distributing medications. Any pharmacy task may be involved, including counting tablets, capsules; tracking and updating customer information such as medical history and drug interaction risk detection in databases; measuring and mixing powders and liquids for compounding; and inventory management. By automating the pharmacy, it will reduce filling errors, increase patient safety and staff productivity, and fill more prescriptions in less time. Currently, automation solutions range from simple packaging technology to enterprise-level continuous inventory management.

Market Dynamics
The global market for the Pharmacy Automation Systems Market is primarily driven by the increasing need to decrease prescription errors, the benefits of pharmacy automation systems over manual medication dispensing, and the development of improved features. For instance, a UK study found that 12% of all primary care patients may be affected by a prescribing or monitoring error over a year, increasing to 38% in those 75 years and older and 30% in patients receiving five or more drugs during 12 months. Overall, 5% of prescriptions had prescribing errors. Moreover, the growing geriatric population will increase demand for Pharmacy Automation Systems as the elderly population has a more significant incident rate of chronic and life-threatening diseases, thereby needing a high volume of medications. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2017, there are an estimated 962 million people aged 60 or over in the world, comprising 13% of the global population and is projected to be 1.4 billion in 2030.
However, factors such as unwillingness to adopt pharmacy automation systems due to the high cost of the pharmacy automation system may hinder market progress.

Geographical Analysis
North America dominates the market share of the global Pharmacy Automation Systems market. It is primarily attributed to its broad base of the patient population, the need to reduce medication errors, and the increase in the adoption of Pharmacy Automation Systems. For instance, according to a study conducted by Johns Hopkins, more than 250,000 people in the US die annually because of medication mistakes, making it the third-largest cause of death after heart disease and cancer. Moreover, the region’s established healthcare infrastructure, high investment in R&D activities and technological advancements in additional features, higher success rate, and newer applications of the device are contributing to the growth of North America’s share. For instance, in 2016, Omnicell, a leading provider of medication and supply management solutions and adherence tools to health care systems and pharmacies, launched the SureMed by Omnicell Guided Packing software. Cloud-Based software is designed to increase pharmacists’ accuracy in filling SureMed multiple medication blister cards, which can improve medication adherence for patients on complicated medication regimens.
