Pharmacy is a booming industry.
North American Pharmacy Information System Marketing growing
In 2014 the North American pharmacy information system market carried a value of more than $1.3 million - and that number is expected to climb to in excess of $2 million by 2019.

Pharmacy Information Systems (PIS) is an application used by medication dispensaries to increase patient safety by helping decrease the number of errors that may happen in the dispensing process. It also provides information about dosage times and limits for specific patients based on their age, weight and gender.

The explosion of the market has been aided by government backing as well as the skyrocketing cost of healthcare.

The U.S. segment of the pharmacy information system had the largest share in the North American market. With growth in research as well as government backing, it is expected to grow by just over 8 percent over the next five years.

Cerner Corporation (U.S.), athenahealth, Inc. (U.S.), eClinical Works (U.S.), Epic Systems (U.S.), Allscripts (U.S.), McKesson Corporation (U.S.), and ScriptPro LLC (U.S.), among others, are some of the major players in the market.
