High Cost of Implementation of Pharmacy Automation Systems is a Major Hiccup in Growth of the Market

In recent years, the role of IT applications in pharmacy automation has extended to e-prescribing, clinical decision support system (CDSS), electronic health record (EHR), computerized physician order entry (CPOE), and interactive voice response (IVR).
