Pharmacists and Automation

Pharmacy, Pharmacists and Automation
Will the pharmacy field be automated in the future?

It is unlikely that pharmacists will be fully automated in the near future. 

While automation and technology can help pharmacists in their work, there are many tasks that require the knowledge, skills, and judgment of a human pharmacist. 

For example, pharmacists are responsible for reviewing and verifying the accuracy of prescriptions, counseling patients on the proper use of medications, and identifying and addressing potential drug interactions and other safety concerns. 

These tasks require a level of expertise and decision-making ability that cannot be easily automated. However, it is possible that some routine tasks, such as filling prescriptions, may be automated in the future, allowing pharmacists to focus on more complex and higher-level tasks that require their specialized training and knowledge.
