Pharmacy automation is the automation of tasks performed in pharmacy or other health care settings. Dispensing medications in a community pharmacy manually is a time-consuming operation. A typical community pharmacist has to work longer hours and often forced to hire additional staff to handle increased workloads. This extra workload did not allow the time to focus on safety issues. This new factor led to the concept of using automated pharmacy solutions. The advance medication systems use shared database which eliminates redundant data entry that can lead to errors and form seamless integration with healthcare information systems and interoperability that creates safer, more efficient workflow
