How the Baby Boom Generation Affects Walgreens

Neighborhood pharmacies like Walgreens and CVS are most people’s pharmacy of choice. This is because they are located in convenient areas and people can do other shopping while they wait to pick up their prescriptions, or they can chose to use the pharmacy drive-thru and not even get out of their vehicles.

There are some benefits to going to local retail-pharmacies, for example, convenience; however there are also drawbacks. Most of these pharmacies are busy and this fact produces a very stressful retail environment for pharmacy staff. Many pharmacists are overworked because retail pharmacy chains often hire novice technicians instead of hiring additional pharmacists to fill prescriptions in order to save money. Unfortunately, the settings at these retail pharmacies will continue to get worse because of the baby boom generation.

Why Would Baby Boomers Negatively Affect Retail-Pharmacies?

As baby boomers are continuing to age and need more medications as part of their health care, they will impact every aspect of the health care industry, including pharmacies. Many pharmacists are already expected to dispense too many prescriptions in order to make the company more money. As more and more people are relying on medications as they age, pharmacies will continue to be overwhelmed with prescriptions. This flood of prescription orders is hazardous to consumers’ health unless Walgreens and other retail-pharmacies hire more pharmacists for the amount of aging baby boomers.
