The ongoing pressures of the COVID pandemic have taken a huge toll on the healthcare industry overall, and pharmacies have certainly not been immune to the damages. 

The pandemic caused 70% of hospital pharmacists to have added responsibilities and 86% of hospitals had to change their medication use guidelines. One result of this is that three quarters of pharmacists have reported burnout. Sadly, we’re also seeing pharmacists retire at a much greater rate than new pharmacists are coming in. 

This discrepancy naturally leads to huge gaps in all the operations needed to effectively run a pharmacy, and this is where pharmacy automation steps in. 

There are numerous areas where pharmacy automation can perform tasks that don’t need to be done manually. Pill sorting, inventory management, and drug interaction and allergy checks, to name a few, can all be done automatically. 
Not only does pharmacy automation fill the staffing needs, but it also helps to reduce medication errors.
