InfoTech in Pharmacy

InfoTech in Pharmacy is relevant; such that in some instances, computerized pharmacy management information systems are used to verify if the prescribed medication and dosage is appropriate for the patient’s condition, automated dispensing cabinets to prevent the wrong medicines from being given to patients when a physician or pharmacist is not present, and computerized infusion pumps to ensure that intravenous fluids are appropriately administered to patients.

With all these, how can this be applied to, say, the Nigerian Healthcare delivery system.
