One of the primary responsibilities of the modern American pharmacy is to properly count and dispense pills. As the over-50 population of the United States swells to record numbers over the next 20 years, pharmacies will find themselves hard pressed to keep up with the number of prescriptions that need to be filled. A perhaps unnoticed side consequence of the increasing volume of pills being counted will be cross-contamination.
