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
