In 1989, Jim Gibbs opened Gibbs Pharmacy in the town of Lebanon, Tennessee, hoping to bring personalized, friendly care to the community. By building an excellent team and installing state-of-the-art pharmacy automation technology, Gibbs was dedicated to running a business that helped patients take care of all aspects of their health. Thirty years later, the pharmacy team continues to find new ways to give patients the best possible care. To learn more about life at Gibbs Pharmacy, we spoke with CPhT and Specialty Operations Coordinator, Christian Bardon, who gave us some insight into how the pharmacy staff works together behind the counter and out in the community.

Empowering the Pharmacist With Pharmacy Automation

Posted by Caitlin Taylor

Jan 6, 2022 8:38:25 AM

It’s no secret that pharmacists and pharmacy technicians experience a high level of stress on the job. They are responsible for making sure their patients get their medicine safely and accurately, but conditions in the pharmacy do not always facilitate the concentration needed to do their job to the best of their ability. Many pharmacists report that they feel pushed to meet nearly impossible metrics that emphasize quantity of patients over quality of service. Add in long hours and staff shortages and you have an overworked profession pushed to the point where errors are more likely to happen. Additional responsibilities like COVID vaccination and testing have only intensified stress put on a workforce already strained to its breaking point. 

It’s clear that a change is needed in the pharmacy industry that will improve working conditions for pharmacy employees, therefore improving patient safety. Pharmacies across the country are now looking to pharmacy automation systems for a solution to save time and reduce errors. Pharmacy automation uses machines to automate tasks in the pharmacy workflow, freeing up pharmacy staff for important customer-focused duties.
