As someone who is not a pharmacist it's hard to understand why things can't be done more efficiently. What's wrong with the system that this can't happen? As an example my experience in the USA (maybe this has changed) was that a doctor scribbles some illegible prescription which I then had over to a pharmacy and have to wait 20+ mins. In other countries the doctor orders the prescription on the computer. At that point a robot at the pharmacy could give me the prescription. So what's the real problem? Too many regulations? If we had a more centralized medical system would this get better or worse? Or maybe if we had a less centralized system so I could choose the company that gets shit done quickly and without mistakes. I mean from the outside it seems like an easily solvable issue. The same systems that have robots doing inventory in a warehouse seem like they could do something similar in a pharmacy.
So, since you seem to know can you explain why I can't be efficient?
