Now in its 9th 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 and electronic prescribing.

The agenda evolves each year in line with the industry developments and latest initiatives. It looks beyond only implementation experiences and focuses in on what is new i.e. interesting customisations and innovations, how sites are managing complexities and the work being done in speciality areas.

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.


Exciting sponsorship & exhibition opportunities are now available for the eMedication Management Conference.

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
