    Top 5 Spookiest Things Pharmacists Face

    It’s Halloween, which means it’s time to take a close look at the creepiest things affecting pharmacies.



    4. Robots taking your job

    A common question among pharmacy is, how much will be automated? What is the role of the pharmacist in 2017 and beyond?

    Pharmacists are constantly broadening their scope of services, providing better care and more of it than ever before. But at their core, pharmacists are about providing medication, keeping patients safe and informed.

    But at least company is trying to put the kibosh on that. Behold, the face of death:

    If this is the future, it is dark indeed. A small robot dispensing meds and giving health advice? What could go wrong? It raises more questions than it answers: Are we prepared to rely that heavily on a computer for health advice? Will people start ignoring health-care professionals in favor of robots? Why is its face so creepy?

    Only time can answer these questions, but you have been warned. Beware.
