Automation Reliance Rises Always

State of Pharmacy Automation 2019 - Vol.16 No. 8 - Page #1

This year marks the 14th annual State of Pharmacy Automation survey and results issue. Looking back at all the practice and regulatory changes that have transpired in that time, it is amazing to realize how dramatically pharmacy has grown in role and responsibility. The reliance on rapidly maturing automation and technology has advanced significantly, matched only by the increased demand on clinically precise and safe medication production by the pharmacy.

Maintaining compliance with myriad rules, regulations, and recommendations is a daunting task under the best of circumstances, but given the number of different roles undertaken by today’s pharmacy director, rare is the day that complications do not arise. Thus, reliance on proven and robust automation technology is essential.

PP&P serves as a resource for 88% of all pharmacy directors making automation purchases.

The data described in the following pages, trending over multiple years and representing a well-refined survey methodology, can be used to compel your facility’s administration to continue supporting positive operational changes to pharmacy systems and processes.

Pairing the skill, education, and passion of a hospital pharmacist with cutting edge technology enhances patient care and reduces costs for today’s hospitals and health systems. To this end, we are very proud that 88% of hospital pharmacists use PP&P to directly influence automation and technology acquisitions.

We look forward to seeing how the rest of 2019 unfolds and what exciting changes and developments we are assured to see in 2020.

All the best,

R. Mitchell Halvorsen
