Amazon Makes Big Foray Into Health Care With PillPack Purchase

The robots keep coming! I frequently post articles highlighting the need to get familiar with building using and replacing robots and programs or get replaced by automation. This is another example although the automation angle is subtle. The company Amazon acquired automates many of the functions pharmacists carry out. Amazon, with their vast computing resources, can expand the functions that are automated.

So to those in pharmacy school now or working in a pharmacy: get familiar building / using / maintaining the software and systems that automate your work. If you do not, you may get replaced by those systems.
