Improve quality, reduce costs, and increase human efficiency through the Autonomous Pharmacy.

The Autonomous Pharmacy is a bold new vision for medication management that seeks to replace manual, error-prone activities with automated processes that are safer and more efficient. The ultimate goal is to reallocate talent to higher-value tasks that help improve patient outcomes.

Why radical pharmacy transformation is needed

Healthcare leaders increasingly struggle with medication management challenges such as increased drug spending, medication waste, drug shortages, and controlled substance diversion.

These challenges are compounded by disjointed manual workflows that keep pharmacists, nurses, and physicians from focusing on what matters most – positive health outcomes through safe and effective medication therapy.

Medication-related problems account for 40% of hospital readmissions.

“I define the autonomous pharmacy as one in which pharmacy technicians manage automated, intelligent systems to run the practice of medication storage, preparation, and distribution... In turn, pharmacists are free to focus on the clinical aspects of patient care and also use intelligent systems to improve outcomes.”

Chief Pharmacy Officer, Massachusetts General

“The autonomous pharmacy is the pharmacy of the future, and with it TCH is streamlining workflows, driving cost savings, and transforming patient care. ”
