In hospitals, it is necessary to maintain clear traceability of the lifecycles of drugs from delivery of the drugs to dispensing prescriptions designed for individual patients, preparation, supply, use in patients, and disposal. For this purpose, it is possible to verify the efficiency and accuracy of work in the pharmacy department..
