How automated pharma storage and retrieval operations is the next revolution, overturning the existing traditional methods?
Pharma Storage & Retrieval
When it comes to traditional pharma storage & retrieval, a myriad of challenges arises, making the pharmacist’s work more difficult and the customers disgruntled. Even though a great deal of time, effort, and capital has been invested, there are numerous prospects for mishaps to transpire. The following are some of the most often encountered difficulties while using conventional methods:
Increased workload for pharmacists!
As soon as the medications have been put in their respective separate bags in accordance with their prescription, each bag will be labeled with the patient’s name to help differentiate it from the others. Making a list of everything in alphabetical order will take a tremendous amount of time and effort. Furthermore, failure to recognize the appropriate bags when there is a conflict between first and last names may result in the erroneous delivery of medications. Consequently, the pharmacist will be under a great deal of pressure to oversee the whole process.
Improper updating of inventories may arise!
In pharma industry, there are plethora of moving pieces which leads to several possibilities for human errors to occur in terms of stock levels, expiration dates and maintenance schedules when handled manually. Furthermore, when records are not maintained and inventory is not kept up to date, it may be very devastating for any business, but it is particularly hazardous in the pharmaceutical industry since lives are on the line when mistakes are made.
Traditional systems are not conducive to collaboration!
Any organization in the healthcare sector will assure you that operating together as a team is essential to giving good patient care to your patients. It should come as no surprise that this transfers into the pharmaceutical storage and retrieval which is a part of the medical organization. A traditional pharmacy system is often only viewable to a single individual, does not operate on mobile devices and consists of RFID to track supplies. It becomes more difficult for workers and care providers to maintain information up to date because of this.
Process that is excessively time consuming!
Patient dissatisfaction might be exacerbated when the response time for the patient is prolonged. Elderly patients who are unable to go to a pharmacy shop will have trouble locating pharmacies that are located at a distance or in a different location from where they live. If they can make it, waiting in large lines to get their prescription will be an extremely tough and time-consuming process!
