Survey Respondents

April 2020 : State of Pharmacy Compounding - Vol.17 No. 4 - Page #4

Increasing the efficiency of pharmacy operations wherever possible has never been more imperative. Now is the time to leverage automation, outsourced vendors, up-to-date equipment, and RTU products to free staff up to focus on pressing priorities. PP&Ps 13th annual survey results of US compounding practices is derived from pharmacy directors who represent a balanced cross section of hospital pharmacies in terms of facility size, location, and compounding volume. The data herein allows you to benchmark your operations against those of your peers.

The results herein reflect the experiences of facilities across the US as survey respondents represent a cross section of health system facility sizes.

Growth will continue to be the hallmark of compounding, with most facilities expecting their in-house compounding volumes to increase over the next 3 years.

Daily compounding volumes vary widely by facility size, underscoring the diversity of compounding experiences and thus, the diversity of approaches taken to deliver safe and effective CSPs.

This year’s increase in compounding volume saw a corresponding increase in the number of FTEs assigned to the cleanroom, a welcome relief after last year’s trend of decreasing compounding staff.
