Rigid regulations. Heightened patient care demands. Labor-intensive workflows. Today’s high-pressure healthcare has little tolerance for error, especially with more and more new drugs (and their side effects) being released. On top of this, demands on pharmacists for productivity and cost savings can compromise workflows and safety.
The US FDA reports the most common medication errors as administering improper dosages (41% of fatal errors) or the wrong drug (16%). And almost half of fatal medication errors occur in people over 60 – underscoring the need for increased clarity with prescriptions. All told, more than 7,000 US deaths each year are estimated related to medication errors, putting more pressure on today’s pharmacists when it comes to accuracy, efficiency and tracking.
