Pharmacy Track: The Future of Autonomous Pharmacy

Monday, September 20, 2021 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Dr. Arash Dabestani

As pharmacy leaders, you have an increasingly strategic role in supporting patients and clinicians through medication management. For many pharmacists, this process can be unnecessarily manual, time-consuming, and error prone. Leveraging technology to automate medication management can be key to improving workflows, clinician satisfaction, and patient outcomes. Join us as we discuss all aspects of autonomous pharmacy, including the autonomous pharmacy framework, and discover how fully autonomous pharmacy operations could benefit your IDN.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain the autonomous pharmacy framework and your pharmacy’s current stage in the framework.
  2. Outline strategies to implement autonomous pharmacy technologies into your IDN pharmacy.
  3. Evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of autonomous pharmacy operations.
