Pharmacy Times interviewed Dennis Wright, senior director of product marketing for Central Pharmacy Compounding and Dispensing at Omnicell, on curbing the rising rate of hospital pharmacist burnout through automation and technology-enabled services to ease the burden on hospital pharmacists and broader health systems.

During the discussion, Wright addressed some of the factors behind hospital pharmacist burnout during the COVID-19 pandemic, what an “autonomous pharmacy” is and what it might look like in practice, whether an autonomous pharmacy might put pharmacists or pharmacy technicians out of a job, what some of the foreseeable problems are that might occur in the implementation of a fully autonomous pharmacy, and whether there are any practices or technologies that could be quickly implemented in hospital pharmacies looking to ease the workload on hospital pharmacists immediately.
