Barcode scanning technology for pharmacy dispensing (e.g., DPDC, DoseEdge)

Hello,

For those using barcode scanning technology for medication order preparation and verification during dispensing (e.g., Dispense Prep and Dispense Check in Epic, DoseEdge by Baxter):
1) What is/are your adherence targets (e.g., 85%? 95% adherence)?
1a) Is/are your target(s) for preparation and/or verification?
2) How did you determine those targets?
3) What are barriers to achieving the targets?

Thanks in advance!
