Now in its 10th year, this is the only event of its kind to provide a platform for a wide mix of decision makers to network and discuss the latest in electronic medication management, electronic prescribing and the electronic health record.

The agenda evolves each year in line with the industry developments and latest initiatives. This year, it will look beyond only implementation experiences and focuses in on what is new. Such as how the pandemic has accelerated system updates & upgrades and interesting customisations and innovations. The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety final report due out on 26th February 2021 will provide an understanding as to where GPs and Pharmacists play a fundamental role in medication management whilst reducing patient errors. However, the use of digital technology and eMedication will sure to be highlighted as a way of enhancing care

Speakers will address the issues that they have faced during their optimisations and what they have done to combat these issues and how the vendor’s have redesigned.

Critically, it brings together a diverse cross section of decision makers from pharmacists to nursing staff, medical staff, IT support and project teams.

This is reflected in the high level and wide-ranging multidisciplinary perspectives featured in the conference program.

Our communities are keen to reconnect, network, and learn more than ever after months of disruption. We are excited to be moving back to face-to-face events but will continue to offer the option to attend the event virtually.

This activity has been accredited for 10 hrs of Group 1 CPG (or 10 CPD credits) suitable for inclusion in an individual pharmacist’s CPD plan.
Accreditation Number: A2103eMed1

Improving Efficiency of Outpatient Pharmacy Services with Pharmacy Robots – Learnings from Doha, Qatar

Mohamed Magoury, Head of Pharmacy Informatics and Automation at Fakeeh Care Group and Acting Pharmacy Director, Fakeeh University Hospital, DUBAI

The Al Wakra Hospital Pharmacy Department based in Doha, Qatar is one of the most advanced in the Middle East, with inpatient, sterile compounding, outpatient and satellite pharmacies serving more than 40 specialties. One of the most exciting innovations has been the introduction of pharmacy robots. In the outpatient pharmacy, integration of Rowa with Cerner PharmNet Retail has improved dispensing accuracy and medication safety, while reducing the average waiting time by up to 80 %.

“Rowa’s ability to store both lot and expiry date information for every medication in the device database has greatly improved our management of expired medications, reducing expired
stock wastage and improving patient safety.”
Mohamed Magoury, RPh, PMP, CPHIMS, Pharmacy Informatics Officer, Al Wakra Hospital, Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha
